Donald Judd

Donald Judd was a minimalist artist who affects our everday lives still now. His minimalist art has made its way into our homes in many ways.
This is his work "Untitled", which is just ten boxes made out of metal not supposed to resemble anything or to be associated with anything. This speaks to the mind in the way that we, in America have been socially constructed to think about things in ways of associations. That's how we've been tauht to learn things. But this is just the opposite of what Judd wanted to get out of this work of art. One of Donald Judd's characteristics of his art is his reproductions of his works with changes only in color or material.
This reproduction from Donald Judd that resembles this crate design from Ikea just goes to show one way that Donald Judd has influenced our homes today.
This crate design was made by Francis Cayouette to be sold in Ikea stores. It much resembles the above sculpture by Donald Judd in its minimalistic design.
This is another work of Donald Judd's minimalisic art. He created more than one of these horizontal progressions.
Donald Judd, Untitled, 1966. Stainless steel and yellow Plexiglas. Six 34 inch cubes.
This is another work by Donald Judd that is untitled, but is described as stainless steel and plexiglass. It resembles the piece of work above it in the horizontal orientation and in his minimalistic style.
