Three years ago, I wrote about the Russian-born French artist Marc Chagall and how, based on a selection of his quotes, it would be nice if art imitated life. Well, it seems I've gotten my wish. At a recent gallery show, guests were encouraged to interact with the artists by sharing comments and feelings about each piece with Post-It notes on the wall. This social part of social media played out wonderfully in real life in a manner more meaningful than online.
In what ways do you see art imitating life? How do you wish it did? The blurred boundary between the two is a fascinating subject worth exploring.
Small spaces require an attention to detail that is familiar to the world of fashion. Stylists might remove an accessory before considering an outfit complete. Editing for interiors is just as important to avoid overcrowding tight spots.
Downsizing can make this difficult, however, as it did for me this past year. Emotional attachments cloud decisions about what to keep, what to discard. Regardless, whether starting fresh or moving into something more cozy, editing is critical.
Tackling this design project on your own? Remove one piece. You'll be happy you did.
Tip: Take a picture. Photos offer clarity. The two dimensional nature of photography is helpful in the editing process.
