I love writing Domino Magazine's retrospective column because it gives me the opportunity to mine the sources that have inspired me the longest—those artists whose influence evolves over many years and never fails to deliver something new every time I return. I first fell in love with Michelangelo Antonioni as a work/study student in the University of Chicago's Department of Cinema and Media Studies, when I helped to organize a screening and discussion of his 1975 film, The Passenger. Through Antonioni's lens, the desert landscape became a flat canvas of cream-colored stone, pink sand and sun-bleached sky. Blow-Up paired the mod fashion world of the 1960s with the palette cleanser of London's gray city streets. Red Desert revealed the toxic but beautiful smokescapes of industrial Europe. In the Domino article, Antonioni's pared-back palettes not only create their own worlds, but go beyond the screen to inform the enigmatic simplicity of modern industrial design.
