When we think of dialogue we think of conversation.  However there is another way to use this word? WholeBeS uses dialogue for triggering design sensibility.

The universal root + definition of Dialogue

GREEK | dia {through} legein {speak}

  1. a discussion between two or more people
  2. an exchange of views - opinions or ideas

Louis Kahn said, "You say to a brick, 'What do you want, brick?' And brick says to you, 'I like an arch.' And you say to brick, 'Look, I want one, too, but arches are expensive and I can use a concrete lintel.' And then you say: 'What do you think of that, brick?' Brick says: 'I like an arch.'"

Dialogue in life is listening and sharing.  It is receiving, considering, and reacting to information. When relationships fray, tension occurs. In these moments dialogue empowers or weakens the situation.

There are different ways to exchange or recognize ideas and objects. You can visually recognize a chair.  You look at the material, color, texture.  By sight, the conversation begins by seeing  form and color. The chair may also be recognized by sound when it is moved.

With a different context or a variety of environmental elements your daily dialogue adjusts. It may support or create a barrier to engaging in daily activities at work, home, or in your community. Dialogue is heart-to-heart or object-to-user. It often commands a private experience.
