what is your favorite art city?

during a recent trip to new york, i finally visited the judd foundation, located at 101 spring street, the former residence and studio of sculptor donald judd (1928-1994).

so, a quote in a recent article about canopy beds in the design & decorating section of the wall street journal caught my attention.

‘going to bed in my canopy…is almost like sleeping in a donald judd sculpture.’

canopy and four poster beds do make you feel like you are sleeping in a structure.  or, in a room within a room.

ironically, donald judd really did sleep within a sculpture.  a wall length fluorescent light sculpture by his friend dan flavin (1933-1996).
