I was told, as a kid, that the sidewalks at LSU in Baton Rouge were
strange because if the students cut across the lawn and made a track,
the university would turn that track into a sidewalk. This may be
apocryphal, but it's always served me well as an understanding of design
vs. usage. I think we have to strike a balance -- neither "Keep off the
grass" signs nor a completely paved campus.

The artist Robert Irwin created this work. I'm not sure if it was at
LSU. His works examine how we perceive by habit, by challenging our
perceptual habits.
