Bruno Munari, Notes for an exploration into the world of Moire, 1962

"There are unexplored zones where artist have not yet ventured to carry out their experiments. Of course, this also depends on the character of the artists, and by artist I mean not only painters but all those in the graphic arts, and all others concerned with visual art.

Indeed, there are artists who have been painting horses all their lives and, for them, the idea of painting a zebra would be so bold as to induce them to meditate for years before facing the problem. Other artists, instead, are curious by nature; they investigate, they experiment, and they are satisfied only when they are the first to venture into unexplored zones where no one has been before or where everyone had been without seeing anything. From that moment on everyone sees. As I see it, this is the artist's job, especially today when science and technology have provided us with such formidable means."
