inspiration: Andrea Vittel

I love Andrea Vittel's shifting body of work. I think I need to incorporate a little more discipline and control in my life and I am inspired by her theories.
Blurring the lines between life and art, Zittel’s projects extend to her own home and wardrobe. Wearing a single outfit every day for an entire season, and constantly remodeling her home to suit changing demands and interests, Zittel continually reinvents her relationship to her domestic and social environment

Check out her smock shop project where they sell handmade clothing meant to "save you time, money and energy. Rather than agonizing about what to put on each morning you can move on to larger things like experiencing the world in it's fullest and learning about new things. We promise that your full life will be far more exciting then your full closet ever was."The smockshop is an artist run enterprise that generates income for artists whose work is either non-commercial, or not yet self sustaining.

Her inspiration for the project came from working in an office and not having enough money to wear expensive clothes everyday. I don't have the guts/discipline to wear one outfit for an entire season but I do agree that fretting over what I wear to work everyday does waste some time.

Melodious Thonk, I am FINALLY looking at your precious little blog!!! I am sorry I haven't sent any snail mail lately. But I do hope you are chopping up your fresh basil on the fruit cutting board. I am going to e-mail you some picture goodies as promised long ago.

Love you..........
