A Conversation w/ Richard Powers



I feel compelled to talk today about

Andrea Zittel

and housework, which I detest.

I’m organized, but I really hate cleaning; you spend all of your time doing something that will eventually just go back to its previous state.

When I was living in a house with my ex, in California, we both stopped cleaning,and our mess just got to a state of equilibrium after awhile.

But anyway, you clean and then it gets dirty again, but if you spend time doing something creative, likebuilding something, you’d actually have forward motion as opposed to the stasis of a repetitive act.”
