I'm always fascinated by "do-overs". It's a chance to improve, or to depart the past to become something completely new. This Frank Gehry building is one of many interesting buildings in Dusseldorf's "media harbor". A decade ago, this area was a grungy harbor area, apparently used for industrial steel tubes. Now it's this incredibly hip place full of media companies, fashion designers, and bars - not to mention a more than a few Ferrari's. It still retains the best of its harbor character, but it has become vibrant again. I try to think of my art the same way. Where am I getting stale? How can I reinvent my technique or adjust my perspective to make my work better than ever?
