Noun:The state of being useful, profit-able, or beneficial.
I like the word ‘Utility’, in fact i would go further and say most of what i make, design and create is utilitarian. Not minimalist that to me offers up products of stark, uniform finish. I like simple things, made just enough. Pencil marks, paint brush strokes and fixings seen. This can be furniture, drawings and even food. Not fancy just hand made.
Same with my own physical state, there is strong enough for daily life and even my chosen pastime of kayaking, there is a point at which the pursuit of strength has become the focus, there is a limit to how hard you can pull on a paddle.
