365 People: Day 14 (and 13) – Christo and Jeanne-Claude

So yesterday was impossible (funny that it was day 13).  So today to make up for my missed day, I’ll post about two artists.  They are my favorite collaborators.  It is not so much their monumental work in it’s finished form that inspires me (though they are spectacular) as much as the work it takes to bring these works to completion.  When I think of how complicated it must be to get these environmental pieces accomplished, I am astonished.  If ever I have the opportunity to make the installations I dream about, then it will be Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s method  which I will emulate.
