"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."

From her experimental home and clothing projects to her artificial "Pocket Property" island off the coast of Denmark, Andrea Zittel is an artist who truly "lives" art. "We're obsessed with perfection, we're obsessed with innovation and moving forwards. But what we really want is the hope of some sort of a new and improved or better tomorrow." Filmed in Zittel's Brooklyn home and studio, which serves as her artful business "A-Z Administrative Services," the artist takes the viewer on a tour of her specially designed bathroom, furniture, and wardrobe—a whimsical blend of the artist's Southern California roots and 20th Century Modernist design philosophy.
