The start of the school year is like a rebirth. While its still over 100 degrees here, everyone is thinking about the crispness of fall, and anticipating the rush of new, clean air that will elevate the funk and smog blanket sitting on this baking crust. Whatever is no longer useful, falls away. As a teacher, the breath of fresh air of a new school year is a crazy time that leaves your head spinning, and the last thing you want around you is clutter. To breathe in anything new, you have to clean out the old, and hot hot weather makes unneccessary junk around you feel all the more heavier.
So, I want MINIMAL. Ahh the Japanese, what an amazing sense of aesthetics. Things are considered as either evolving from or dissolving into nothingness. This 'nothingness' is not empty space. It is, rather, a space of potentiality. (says wikipedia, anyways). From space comes potentiality. I am inviting the opportunity for a large, empty space to call my studio to de-clutter my creative spirit.
