Diagrams show the introduction of the character on the screen and the last moment that we see the character. This study was a way to track major shifts in hierarchy and how the characters interact initially and eventually.

Articles on Donald Judd mention how he liked to differentiate between his furniture design, architecture and “art”. Here, at Marfa Texas, all of these worlds collide. The experience here in the Artillery shed is this. Redesigned, the building accommodates the specific objects to allow them intense amounts of sun exposure, their reflective surfaces charged with receiving and projecting light and shadow. In scale these objects reference as furniture, as a series of desks but their surfaces in the sun would yield them as un usable. In this fashion Judd has created objects that can just be, to live their own lives without human expectations and hover in a place of close but not quite what we expect. A meter that reminds us that we live in a narrative and our expectations keep us there.

Clean lines, Handsome colors

Every time I go to NYC I stay in a tiny apartment. The whole stay becomes not about the city but about how I can create a system of furniture that looks good and can adapt to the needs of the user. These specific objects don’t have an obvious purpose and may have been created before Judd had accepted his foray into furniture from untitled “art”. Regardless they speak to me in the same way that delivered two Eames books to my door. Simplicity, utility, and design married into a product that caters to the user. The set of like things with subtle differences speak to the modularity that I see in our futures as we pare down our living spaces. These specific objects offer a design solution to the problem of how to create all plywood carcasses without mitering the sides to the top and bottom. Judd’s move is very modern architecture, differentiate the flats from the edges and exhibit the end grain. Suddenly, the shameful becomes the ornament.

These prints are evidence that constraints can fuel the creative process. This was a notion I found hard to believe when it was first told to me but its a reoccurring theme in my discovery of art and architecture. This series of prints uses the same size page and primary blocking to dictate where the color goes. A second system guides further division throughout the page. In isolation a print may not have the same impact as a set. The set shows the exploration of the rules and the adherence to the systems.

This theme is consistent throughout Judd’s work, the collection of parts derived from a system.
