Medienhafen Dawn

I’m always fascinated by “do-overs”.  It’s a chance to improve, or to depart the past to become something completely new.  This Frank Gehry building is one of many interesting buildings in Dusseldorf’s “media harbor”.  A decade ago, this area was a grungy harbor area, apparently used for industrial steel tubes.  Now it’s this incredibly hip place full of media companies, fashion designers, and bars – not to mention a more than a few Ferrari’s.  It still retains the best of its harbor character, but it has become vibrant again.  I try to think of my art the same way.  Where am I getting stale?  How can I reinvent my technique or adjust my perspective to make my work better than ever?
