Organized Mind, using your designer rather than your artist
Artists and designers think alike. But designer’s are trained to organize information, not just express it. As I attempt to channel more of my designer mind as I clean up a studio more controlled by my chaotic and expressive artist mind I am really loving Ursus Wehrli’s obsessively categorized and organized work. I find I work very fluidly and more messy in my studio, yet in my kitchen everything has a place and function. The kitchen always looks the same as it did after I cook. In the kitchen an order is prescribed, without it timing gets off, recipes aren’t followed and disasters happen, most cooking accidents and disasters don’t make for a great meal, especially when baking. But in the studio there isn’t really a prescribed order and messes, accidents and chaos often result in wonderful work.
So as I try to find a balance and free up a small studio to more creative endeavors and less timely cleanup and prep I’ll keep referring to the visuals in Wehrli’s book “The Art of Cleanup“.
