Messy-Deskers Unite: New Study Hints That We're More Creative

Messy-Deskers Unite: New Study Hints That We're More Creative | Art Research - Visual Diary | Scoop.it

One of my favorite viral e-mails of all time is one that simply shows the office desks of various geniuses that look like they needed an immediate visit from FEMA, ranging from the work platforms of Albert Einstein to William F. Buckley to Nat Hentoff. It implies the question: What’s so bad about a bit of clutter where you work?

Sophie Calle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sophie Calle (born 1953) is a French writer, photographer, installation artist, and conceptual artist.[1] Calle's work is distinguished by its use of arbitrary sets of constraints, and evokes the French literary movement of the 1960s known as Oulipo. Her work frequently depicts human vulnerability, and examines identity and intimacy. She is recognized for her detective-like ability to follow strangers and investigate their private lives. Her photographic work often includes panels of text of her own writing.

Since 2005 Sophie Calle has taught as a professor of film and photography at European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland.[1] She has lectured at the University of California, San Diego in the Visual Arts Department.[2] She has also taught at Mills College in Oakland, California. Exhibitions featuring the work of Sophie Calle took place at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia,[3] at Musée d'Art et d'Histoire du Judaïsme, Paris,[4] at Paula Cooper Gallery, New York, USA, at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Brussels, Belgium; Videobrasil, SESC Pompeia, São Paulo, Brazil; Museum of Modern Art of Bahia, Salvador, Brazil; Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, UK; and the De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art, Tilburg, The Netherlands.[5]

After completing her schooling she travelled for seven years. When she returned to Paris in 1979 she began a series of projects to acquaint herself again both with the city and people of Paris and with herself. However, she soon discovered that observing the behaviour and actions of these strangers provided information with which to construct their identities. These sought to construct identities by offering documentary ‘proof' in the form of photographs. Her work was seen to have roots in the tradition of conceptual art because the emphasis was on the artistic idea rather than the finished object. The French writer Jean Baudrillard wrote an essay (1988) that described this project in terms of a reciprocal loss of will on the part of both pursued and pursuer.
