"The book I've turned to again and again is called Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees
. It's basically 30 years of interviews with the legendary artist Robert Irwin. Why this book? Because Irwin doesn't really have a grand plan; he follows his curiosity where it takes him, making things and trying things and learning as he goes—all the while becoming one of the most influential artists of our time. The title, for me, is about how we can easily spend a massive amount of our energies analyzing, trying to figure things out, standing at a distance dissecting our experiences and, in the process, missing out on simply being present in the moment."
