    the art of space and the different things that can be done with it. Minimalism has become a trend in the eyes of those who own small independent businesses or those who have realised that living with too many objects is more than just overwhelming, living with too much is utterly exhausting. This essay is a heavily researched opinion on the idea that being a minimalist is expensive as well as that it contributes to consumerism despite being viewed as a way to escape consumerism. Look around the room, can everything in this room be counted? Name each item that has been used and the last time that it was used. Unfortunately, most people cannot do that. This is where minimalism comes into play; After applying minimalism as a lifestyle, the problem of half the things owned turning into glorified paper weights goes away. Everything in the new room should be useful and of good quality, another aspect of the minimalist lifestyle is the act of restricting the purchase of new items, this is helped by only buying products that will be of good use. Assuming each product is used to the best of its ability and cared for it will last a…

    Absurdity is key to this exhibition and bringing some humour or levity to minimalist art which otherwise is too often seen as confrontational, anti-humanist, emotionless and intellectually cold. Minimalism may hide its humour behind imposing machine-made structures or recontextualized ready made industrialized forms, but curator John Hampton attempts to show a lighter side of minimalism, he attempts to show us that it is inherently absurd that we take it so seriously. Upon entering the space,…

    I really enjoy writing about the philosophical thought that is at the root of this lifestyle we call minimalism. I especially like to write about the ideas of the ancient greek and roman thinkers like Epicurus, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius. At the same time, I 've been trying to cover a variety of topics over this first year-and-a-half of blogging, so I haven 't been writing about that particular subject lately. It 's also been a while since I 've read any philosophical works and I have…

    but it took getting everything [he] ever wanted to realize that [he] wasn’t happy (Sanburn).” Often, humans focus on the idea of success and are conditioned to think of it as owning the most stuff or spending the most money. But on the inside, most feel empty; no one can see how their lives are “filled with stress and anxiety and discontent (Rosen).” Material possessions often serve as a “physical manifestation of a deeper problem-an internal clutter” that burdens us mentally and emotionally…

Wolff generates a sad ending from the most ordinary thing a human could be doing and this is expressed through the eyes of the story’s narrator that knows how to bring the important details to light.

Wolff is known to be a…

Art”, “Reductive Art”, “Literalism”, “Systematic Painting”, and “Art of the Real” were used to try and describe such an indescribable piece of work. We can only theorize why the current name stuck around, but…
