"Humanize something free of error." - Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt
This quotation is from an art object entitled Oblique Strategies, originally released in 1975 (there have been reissues since) by Eno and Schmidt (a British painter whose works grace the cover of Evening Star and the back cover of Before and After Science).
Oblique Strategies, described by its creators as "over one hundred worthwhile dilemmas", was and is a deck of cards. Each card is solid black on one side and white on the other. The white side is marked with an aphorism set in a 10 point sans-serif typeface. The type on each card offers one of the many approaches the two employed while working through the low points in their creative processes. Each set was produced to be used as a creative tool for artists in need of inspirations/complications.
