donald judd had a boat in switzerland

I am finally back to 
after traveling and a bit of
New Year's

I found this old 
Architectural Digest
Donald Judd's 
home in 
while out picking 
North Carolina.

Dig this cover with the
"Donald Judd" banner.
Could they have picked a 
more non-Judd cover pic?

I could deal with this.
What is that Saturn art?

I hate this room.
So minimal and boring.
Where is the fake wood 
paneling and the potted plants?
So sterile and awful.
What's up with that 
cheap wood furniture too?
Why are there no 
books in those metal 
bookcases on the wall?
This guy is nuts.

This is a bit more like it.
Finally some forced 
warmth and clutter.

Is that a chair or 
a garbage can?

Where is all the stuff?
How could anyone 
live like this?

Messy minimalism,
it was BIG in 1991.

Well, at least the view is nice.

A view of the boathouse.

What does a Donald Judd boat look like???

Maybe like this?


  1. what a great find. I usually hate archit. digest but this is great!

  2. yup that is pretty contrived

  3. d'oh, you are killing me. How could the net come up with photos of Judd's boat before photos of Judd's Land Rover??

    Also, I suspect that Saturn is by Vija Celmins.

    Happy New Year

  4. proposal for a comic in which:... martha stewart is the bad one that wants to rule our hearts souls and.. the world at last.
    everything everywhere has to be tidy and colonial in washable clours,in boxes, people have botoxed faces an bleached anuses, everything works on automatic paypal life system.
    and suddenly out of nowhere the 7thcavalry of design life and architecture have their entrance-
    its time for revolution!
    the 'goddess of grime' from london with her handbags from recycled telephonebookcovers pair up with the "kings of gross" new york heavy smokers and liars,who want to ride their bikes into the cafes like they used to,and two other minor forces one from vienna "modemitzis" and tokyo "the joes".

    will it be possible to run down MS's maximal infernal influence of decorating everybodys life to death?
    will it be possible to return man from his modern form, a credit card ,back into being again a normal hairy human being?

    first they are helpless, but then they find out there were masters long ago having lived among man ,the yedis of modernism(you name them), and these they visit in the
    " ))s u a h u a b(( fields" far away in our planetary system and under very adventurous aspects work out a strategy to fight back the forces of evil decoration.
    it could also be nice film.
    ch.eames advising on sabotaging macramee courses by playing jimmy smith and paul desmond looped.
    at last they prevail ok and esp.the now defeated MS is happy and convinced to future order all her new furniture only from mondocane.
