Domestic Geometry

In the spirit of Michael Nobbs, the "sustainably creative" artist in Wales who draws whatever he sees around him, I present this collection of small domestic sketches. I concentrate on the geometry of the objects, basic shapes of rectangles, cones, cylinders, or convex and concave folds. You can see nested shapes of flowerpots, cardboard boxes, and a part of a laundry bag. And in the foreground, stacks of old audiotapes in their boxes, from the 1960s. I am transcribing the music on these tapes to digital files. Some of this music, electronic improvisation from the Brandeis University studio, has not been heard for more than 40 years. If you follow Michael's creativity strategy, there is always something you can do to move your creative life ahead, even if you only have 20 minutes a day.

Love it! I think I will start doing this, too. Perspective exercises are always useful :)
