Tidying Up Art, Ursus Wehrli

Ursus Wehrli presented at the TED conference recently and I have to admit, his book on "Tidying up Art" is a virus. The basic principle is to take great masterpieces in art and destructure them to the simple elements that they are mad up of. A signiture becomes 30 broken branches, a painting of a person becomes 15 fruit shaped objects, etc. After seeing him lecture and glancing through his book, I've been infected and try to tidy up everything I see now.
