There is also an interesting relationship between what is recognized as "beautiful" and "simple"

Take the interface design as an example. The iPod, MacOS, Nokia navigation menu, CGTalk , Mercedes Benz, Nikon, Victoria Secret laces..these are incredibly complex operating devices yet have incredibly intuitive interfaces. That does not make them "simple" at all. They are easier to operate yes, but that's because the designer has put an extraordinary effort to extrapolate the complexities, and produce a pattern withwhich it can be synchronized with human intuition.

The KISS notion needs nails for its coffin Bring it on...

Art is like music. Though the melody of a musical piece might be simple, there is still a whole lot of stuff going on in the background, like the bass, which isn't really as noticeable if you aren't a musician-- unless it's not there when it needs to be, in which case everyone notices it.
