collation + annotation from the Viridian Notes
There are two approaches to the problem of establishing a Viridian aesthetic: the top-down approach, and the bottom-up. The top-down method consists of issuing historical analogies, broad statements of principle, sweeping aphorisms, and so forth, and trawling these verbal devices over the landscape in the hope that they will net something useful.
The bottom-up approach relies on assembling specific examples, whose aggregate might suggest an emergent future sensibility.
Since we Viridians have an expiration date looming, we will try both approaches at once.
