Frank Gehry: Major Breakthrough

I came across this video of Frank Gehry sharing how he was influenced by artists who would not be as concerned with the finished detail but more so in the overall composition.

Rauschenberg's work ------->

Jasper Johns' "False Start"

Carl Andre's work:---->

Donald Judd's work

Simple life Manhattan: a 90-square-foot microstudio

It is time for spring cleaning. I am thinking about selling the piano, sofas, beds, large flat files, lawn equipment, BBQ, books, tapes, and a lot of other things that should really find themselves in the garbage. Surprising to me, this video is a bit inspiring for me. It shows how one can enjoy life with, well, not much stuff. Check it out and let me know if this appeals to you.
