The Case For More Space
I did this collage in 2008 when we were just busting at the seam in the Pasadena house. This was my studio/library/storage at the time. Books, CD, guitars, canvas, artwork, photographs, easel, dry cleaning, computer, vinyl albums. Name it, it was in my room. I did the 360 deg collage which somewhat shows the chaos of the tiny room, about a 12 ft x 12 ft bedroom. What was weird about existing in this chaos was after a while, I was able to find anything I ever wanted. I knew exactly where I had put a CD or a photograph or a book -- which I think for the most part, is our ability to adapt to conditions of disorder. I knew at some point, that this bedroom had to be cleared in order to make room for either Sam or JJ, who were sharing a room at the time. Thankfully, we got more house in Rancho Cucamonga.
