Gertrude Stein, all courage and will, is a soldier of minimalism. Her work, unlike the resonating silences in the art of Samuel Beckett, embodies in its loquacity and verbosity the curious paradox of the minimalist form. This art of the nuance in repetition and placement she shares with the orchestral compositions of Philip Glass.
Minimal sculpture is composed of extremely simple, monumental geometric forms made of fibreglass , plastic , sheet metal, or aluminum , either left raw or solidly painted with bright industrial colours. Like the painters , minimalist sculptors attempted to make their works totally objective, unexpressive, and non-referential.
"Personally, I’ve always been of the sleek and minimalist design school: make sure the core play is consistent and strong, then let that idea play out against different environments and challenges, this tends toward focusing on bio-mechanical twitch responses, audio-visual awe, and leaning more toward general strategy and tactics development over specific puzzle solving."john d. carmack
