Donald Judd: When an Artist's Home Reflects an Ideal
When I laid eyes on the photo above, I took a long drink of a look. Then I read the article about Donald Judd's 101 Spring Street. While I can't say I could reduce all my things to this level of minimalism, I can say that his home is an ideal worth living up to.
The rooms are beyond spacious and light filled... and full of potential for a kind of life I wish I were living. The one where I'm not fractured by all the things I keep around me grabbing for my attention. The one where I don't grow a colony of tote bags over the space of 3 months in a cabinet. A life where I wake up and eat a bowl of cereal, wash it, take a walk, come home and start working at that amazing dining table with gorgeous chairs.
I really love how Judd envisioned each floor dedicated to one function and as reductive as that seems, particularly in a city where most of us are living in cramped quarters and multi use rooms, I dream about having the luxurious amount of space he had at 101 Spring Street.
I can't wait to tour the museum!
