Contest goal:

Your task here is to bring us your interpretation of what "Minimalism" is.
Put in image what this word means to you.

As it's a very subjective and artistic subject, judges will have to be open minded.

Good luck.

awediot: Interesting to be able to see what "this word means" to people... And nice to have some 'wiggle room' to be able to express a relative interpretation. ( 5 years and 1509 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Wikipedia:
Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, wherein artists intend to expose the essence or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts. Minimalism is any design or style wherein the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.

However the theme say to show YOUR interpretation of what it means, so I will try to not let my own interpretation influence my moderation of the theme.
However, we can all show how we feel in our votes. ( 5 years and 1509 days ago )
awediot: To judge how well an image -exposes/identifies the 'essence' of a specific subject- assumes the viewer knows what that essence is and can measure how close the picture comes... Quite the nearly omniscient task we set ourselves up for here...both in boldly submitting a piece and in critiquing each other (or merely rating the efforts)... The sensitive soul of artists needing to be wrapped in a pretty thick skin paints a perfectly logical paradox. ( 5 years and 1509 days ago )
awediot: I'm curious who suggested this... Care to come forward for some due respect? ( 5 years and 1508 days ago )

Howdie stranger!

The definition of this word is "wake up" & act up!

The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind...
