I've always been interested in the ascetic / spiritually principled / woo woo hippie idea of relinquishing all of your material possessions for a life with less attachment to things.  As an artist who sees everything as art though, I really do LOVE things.  I love looking at them, thinking about them, holding them, understanding how to use / make them better; I just don't really love having so many things. What if there was one thing that did all the things?

The long term goal for this project is to eventually design + produce every item I use in my life.  I want to have my own line of clothes, my own line furniture, my own line of luggage, my own set of knives, my own soap, etc. + offer all of those products to the public through Art.™; A new lifestyle brand I’m developing @artisthepresent.
·
This series is kind of like hosting a garage / thrift / clearance sale of everything I own in my life only all of it is art + the money from selling it will help me eventually replace everything with products I design + create myself which will also be Art.™ under my brand.
