Minimalist Game Days 19-22

February 20th, 2018

Getting more into the difficult-to-deal-with stuff. The creative process tends to generate steps in a physical form and it’s hard to let go. I’m attached to my images. The digital world makes it easier to NOT generate so many physical prints but it is still part of my process.

I’ve put off purging prints (some framed, some matted) for many years. And, here they are, still untouched, unused, unhung. This year they (some of them, anyway) go. There’s still an envelope (or five) that hold prints that resonated with me even today. So, they will go some other time.

It’s getting harder to find things that don’t add value to my life. Here are 15 random things that are in the to go pile. Not sure what I will have for tomorrow!

Minimalist Game Day Ten

February 10th, 2018

Between moving snow and working on my latest photo project, I poked around the kitchen for more things that don’t add value to my life. Broiler pan, two large serving plates, my first piece of pottery, a kitchen utensil, a class top for a pyrex that I think got purged last year, rice maker (barely used). #minsgame

Minimalist Game Day Nine

February 9th, 2018

Expired food items. I have already noticed how easy it is to find things and retrieve things from the kitchen cupboards and frig just with this effort of getting rid of the first ten days worth of stuff. #minsgame

February 8th, 2018

More kitchen stuff: veggie peeler, cookbook, oil spray thing, deviled egg plate, assorted tops and bottoms of plastic storage containers. #minsgame
