10 Bullets by Tom Sachs

NYC-based artist Tom Sachs studied architecture at London’s Architectural Association before deciding to return to the States, where he spent two years working in Frank Gehry’s L.A. furniture shop. It is here that he began using the term knolling, which is arranging and organizing on a 90-degree basis.

He moved from L.A. to New York City around 1990 and found a studio in the disappearing machinery district downtown. His studio, Allied Cultural Prosthetics, took its name from the previous tenant—Allied Machine Exchange—implying that contemporary culture had become nothing but a prosthetic for real culture.

Tom put together a code of conduct for his studio, titled 10 Bullets. Using the ideas behind this mini-bible, Sachs created an engaging 20-minute video providing a look inside the studio and how the team gets their massive art projects done.

Enjoy.

Thanks, Doug 😀
