Generous Design is unknown.

It does not need authority, No need climb to the top of a tower. There are too many towers to climb, and by the time you got to the top of one there is a taller one built right next to it.
Generous design understands that in a world of AI cause and effect thinking is not enough.

Fully wrapping our arms around a system is a luxury we no longer have.

The interconnectedness of our lives makes order impossible. So rather than writing up maps, we should carry a compass.

So much of our lives is about navigating the unknown, unknowing is a human state.

Generous design accepts the liminal,
Open ended universe. It is strength through vulnerability. It is strength through its adaptability. All Rigidness crushes under the weight of change.

Generous design is not a beautifully designed object put on a pedestal, It is the shining of different lights on that object.
Generous design is not the war of words, but the dance of opinions.

Being territorial about knowledge is as futile as trying to catch air.

Generous is design for the unknown. It is about walking in the dark instead of waiting for someone to turn on the light.

It is about moving from the meta meaning to the lived experience and back.

It is about being able to self reflect and practice intentional thinking.

It is experiential thinking. 


"Nitzan Hermon brings to each project his broad variety of interests in history, culture, and technology"
Ken Goldberg, UC Berkeley

“Conversations with Nitzan have always helped me take some steps back, deepen, rephrase and articulate my understanding of human interactions”
Marie Bois, Cartier

“Nitzan is highly personal and reflective. He has natural mentoring and teaching abilities that bring value to all of his engagements and to all those who work with him”
Jeremy Harris, Estée Lauder

“Nitzan has an incredible capacity for facilitating groups of creative leaders to grow, create, imagine, and collaborate in unexpected and exciting ways. I am always inspired and surprised by his facilitation formats, by his ability to go granular and then go holistic, go theoretical and then practical, and communicate in the mediums of design, music, writing, and conversation facilitate these capacities in others. When I first started working with Nitzan as part of the thirdness, I had a very particular idea of what I wanted to do. What I did, and co-created, was far beyond my imagination, and I am very grateful for that.”

"It is a wild, wonderful garden in a time of utter flatness. It moved beyond that monoculture feeling of every other Slack and Discord group, hammering on the same idea from industry experts. Instead, Nitzan built this beautiful permaculture, allowing us all to grow and contribute at our own pace. In the right way, I felt slightly out of place, encountering voices and perspectives from wild and different fields. I got my hands as dirty as they could be in quarantine, after all the useful links, research papers, books, and talks shared from this generative group."

“In a serendipity starved world, Thirdness is a ray of light. Every encounter I have with the community is like bumping into your smartest friend after ten years, moments after they’ve just finished a major project they want to tell everyone about. It’s open, energising, thought-provoking and entirely necessary in the world we find ourselves in right now.”

“Nitzan has a knack for bringing together uniquely creative people and sparking conversations that are energizing and deeply inspiring. Working in product-focused tech for several years, I didn't realize how long it had been since my mind was opened in the way it was after a discussion on speculative epistemology in our breakout session. Hungry to keep learning, I bought five books immediately afterwards on recommendation from the group.” 

“The Thirdness Network is a place that allowed me, as a creative professional, to share moments of liminality with peers. Working in Innovation, often times I feel pressured to know what direction to take for solving complex challenges. The Thirdness network, instead, allows to pause and reflect, exploring questions instead or chasing answers.”
