On Lawrence Halprin
Scores are symbolizations of processes which extend over time” (RSVP CYCLES, 1)… while this is hardly gives a concrete image of scoring, it begins to find clarity in examples of application. Halprin notes that scores include not just musical or movement notation, but are actually omnipresent in our society. A grocery list is a score; so is a calendar, an almanac, a cave etching. They express through symbols (characters/ assigned notations) something larger, more meaningful than the symbol itself. Halprin saw this practice as highly suggestive of a design methodology which related more to process, deep involvement, and an activated collective than most design practice, which was result-oriented and didn’t consider more meaningful, non-static elements in design.
