Growing a studio

# The Atelier

From the latin assula:

assula

/ˈas.su.la/

noun

Splinter, shaving, chip, shiver

A studio justifies wacky art experiments, the bleeps and boops, the lines, and the oodles of gaff tape. It's a vehicle for processing a designer's work; it serves to organize a caotic mismash of disciplines. I don't know what my studio should look like yet (ever?) so it keeps shaping. Fitting spaces, needs, desires, feelings. Sometimes with others, sometimes all alone. This past year I called a few studios home:

  • 407-Eleven
  • The greenhouse
  • My home//the New Hampshire studio

A studio can be anything anywhere as long as it helps an artist do their work. A closet, a warehouse, and anywhere in between serve that purpose. So go out and call something a studio!
