“By creativity we mean the process when in a given structure the personal invention is carried out in the form of group work.”
“Visuality helped us to experience relationships and structures while we saw the various human relationships as patterns.”
“We tried to get rid of constrains of doing something by setting impossible aims or by being responsible for the aesthetics of it together.”
Miklós Erdély (1976)
