  1. I grew up with the mindset of everything being hard to do.
    I heard this many times
    – your stupid
    – he’s gonna fail
    – we don’t want his help
    – I “can’t”

    With help and my own desire I changed my thinking. I am not a college grad. I highly encourage education. I more so encourage a positive way of thinking. I am going to share a few skills I bring to the table
    – cook
    – barber
    – wood working – rustic furniture
    – graphic design
    – plumbing
    – irrigation
    – sales

    I am extremely thankful for the University Of Youtube. It has helped me refine my skills and has develope new ideas.
    Growing up I was my worst enemy. Most of my low self esteem was very mental. I see this person on this small clip and I’m amazed on how much he has learned. He’s very creative and talented. He’s fearless. I am so moved on what the mind can do.

  2. How does he deal with noise and exhaust pollution. Clever and smart, but probably bad on his lungs!

  3. Agood example of a great cretive designer, just proving tat formal educaion is really nothing but a hinder for a true genious. This video also shows that class as understood by communists is an irrelevant term in describing stepping over social barriers… Anyway, it's a pity i don't like his aesthetics. of course that's personal. nevertheless i think as we live in a highly impersonal and from-the-nature-disconnected-world these extreme minimalistic industrial design type projects leave me with a kind of MAD MAX postapocaliptic feel. I wish more would create complex beaty without clutter, natural maerials even if reused with tectile humanitic/biocentric feel using an abundance of naturalforms and approaches. To sum it up: grea job, lovely to see it (even if it's not my way of hinking), keep up the good work colleague!!! thanks Kirsten for showing this!!!!

  4. Was wondering the purpose or how each design creation could be applied and/or function in practical terms and advantage this gentleman… First, he needs to come out so that his genius could perhaps be utilized on a larger scale and reach those thinkers who would ideally think of avenues to take this man to the next level… Very interesting capture of this man's individuality…
    Thank you.

  5. How do you find these people Kirsten? I am deeply moved by his fearlessness, creativity & childlike curiosity. The things he said really struck a chord with me. I’m inspired to keep at my art projects. Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. i think he should add some heavy curtains, so if he would want to he could "define" rooms. but first of all, he would get rid of that horrible echo. thats the only think i dont like about his place.

  9. Artifacts? I'm an archaeologist, 99% of what we dub as artifacts are literally just junk people have left behind. I see the poetry in this, however.

  15. The thing that school should push and doesn't is that it's there to teach you how to learn , not fill your head with algebra and geography and warped history, just as he says to be curious. As a kid I was into everything to do with making and was Lucky to go to an academy that taught woodworking, metal working, technical drawing, sailing, typing cooking and sewing. That sort of education no longer exists.

  16. Yet another Genius who didn't finish school ! you begin to Wonder how many should follow instead of getting their heads stuffed full of irrelevent unuseable rubish
