clearing space to think

cleaning up

so what is with cleaning up the studio before starting a new project?

we always clean up the studio between projects. not that we don’t sweep up or clean up a bit at the end of the day, but the start of a new piece or project brings about a full on, extensive clean up. this is true even when we are slammed and back to back on deadlines. it’s one of our many rituals.

is it a form of procrastination? a way to get our thoughts organized and gear up? does it make the work any better? somehow set the mood?

who knows. maybe it is all of the above. somehow it works and makes us feel good about it and makes the studio a nice place to be.

you know what they say - clean space = clean mind. less clutter frees the mind to focus on the next task at hand or strategize the next big idea w/o the baggage from the previous day or project. it’s about closing one door and opening the next.
