My artist friend Nikki and I tore through my art studio today, getting rid of two huge rusty desks, old wood, and PVC armatures. We swept many times and rearranged most things in the space. It's only a beginning, but it made me think about the many, many hours that artists spend on setting up and cleaning their spaces. I think this is especially true of installation artists that work in many mediums.
I plan on going to the studio again next week to start going through every box and purging.
