About

Visually layered in representation, Designer Matt Legrand explains how harnessing the power of design can generate lasting, positive change and transformation in our individual lives and in our collective world.

Matt calls himself a designer and in a few extraordinarily compact minutes he explains the various levels of what "design" actually means. Cinematographer Hsiao-Yen Jones constructs a striking, visually layered representation of Matt's explanation and makes connections to the inner and outer world that most of us have never thought of. The passing of the film is exhilarating and makes deep linkages between cognitive thinking and the role design plays in the integration of the visual, cultural and political world.
