Brilliant Ellegance

Posted by jael on Oct 8, 2011 in Spiritual Journey, Technology

Hats off to Jonathan Mak whose condolences of the iconic Apple logo rose to the top of the sea of tributes to Steve Jobs on the Internet this week.

Mak, a 19-year-old student of Hong Kong’s Polytechnic University School of Design, incorporated a silhouette of Steve Jobs in the negative space of the bite in Apple’s logo to symbolize the mark Jobs forever leaves on technology.

I am moved by the visual impact of his tribute.

There are times when I write I forget how much less is more.

Mak’s less here makes me ache with appreciation of the  more in elegant simplicity.

His use of negative space is sheer brilliance.

It literally brings a face to the loss so deeply felt in the tech community.

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
