    Aesthethics of Failure. 1
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.

    The Aesthetics of Failure's 10 basic principles:

    1. Failure is a shade of beauty born from imperfection - yet is a portrayal of perfection
    2. Failure is an involuntary consciousness - as well as a manner of comprehending and apprehending reality
    3. Failure is organic - never a deliberate mechanical process or a technical effect alone
    4. Failure arises from life itself - it reveals the surreal that emerges from the real
    5. Failure tends to blend and shift focus - from background to foreground at will
    6. Failure exists both as minute detail and as a big picture - size and scale are human concepts
    7. Failure is the product of what already exists - it handles transformation as a method of conservation
    8. Failure deconstructs to unveil complexity - only if there's such complexity to be unveiled
    9. Failure is shapeless and timeless - yet it tends to be recursive
    10. Failure is ungraspable and random - it is unpredictable yet precise
