“A good design is simple and complete.” One of my art teachers in high school drilled this phrase into my head, and now, when I see art that moves me, that sentence pops into my head. I find myself saying it all the time, too. If someone asks me, “how can I make this better?” my answer is to simplify.
I heard around the water-cooler (aka: Twitter) this morning that Adele put on a stunning performance at the VMAs this past Sunday. I am not surprised. Adele is one of the most artistic musicians I’ve come across in awhile. I’ve probably heard this song 100 times, yet I gave her performance my attention. I have to admit I teared up a bit. It was beautiful. She does simple so well.
This is what is inspiring me this morning. One light. One piano. One voice.
