Honeymoon Habit

With with Anne Speier and Constanze Schweiger, curated for pinacoteca, Vienna, 2015

In the short essay Honeymoon Habit for Real Life Magazine (1980), Kim Gordon tells about one of her early Design Office interventions in which she spray painted three objects − two lamp shades and one mirror − in copper at her friends' apartment. The design was not meant to be well executed or achieve a unique look or style. If anything it matched a lo-fi touch up using or recycling familiar aesthetics, sort of a reflective intervention into someones lifestyle and a way to practice art outside of the institutional system.
