I’ve been thinking a lot about minimalism lately for some reason. We all have an idea of what "minimalism" is, but I wanted to dig a little deeper. According to Wikipedia, minimalism describes a movement where "work is stripped down to its most fundamental features … it is rooted in the reductive aspects of Modernism, and is often interpreted as a reaction against abstract impressionism and a bridge to Postmodern art practices." Strip it down to the fundamentals.
I like the concept of stripping stuff down to the fundamentals. You can strip down anything and literally find that "less is more." Try it. I honestly believe that with the right amount of less, less can be more. Why is that? Well, quite simply because less equals the fundamentals and enjoying the fundamentals — with no excess — feels good. Let me explain my thoughts on the lifestyle of minimalism.
