A source on food, farming and rural society
Funny that most of the artists I have been close to in my life have been minimalists... Even as a teenager I wanted a minimalist aesthetic - made my father take down my bed & remove my bedroom furniture so I could sleep on a mattress on the floor amidst austerity a la japonaise. I'm not the biggest minimalist now in my home decor, and I collect books with a maximalist's passion, but the ideas still intrigue me. And I don't buy nearly the amount of "chatchkes" that other women my age do. In fact I eschew chatchkes completely.
chatchkes - Yiddish for those little gew-gaws, knickknacks, useless items people buy to display or stuff into closets.
