An aesthetic I want to see: Programmable Maximalism.

I’m officially bored of minimalism.

I want walls filled with lights, screens, and a bass thumping sound system.

Always new.

Always fresh.

Always entertaining.

Transporting you between worlds depending on the time of day.

What becomes possible in art becomes possible in life.

Follow the guidance of Brian Eno, who said: ”Stop thinking about art works as objects and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences.”


And then, give me a splash of James Turrell.

I want a place to explore.

I want a temple to a better future.

I want music that makes me swing and colors that make me sing — a space to bathe in beauty and awaken the dreamer within.
