Windy Chien is an artist and an entrepreneur, whose rich career story includes working at Apple to build the iTunes experience we know today, and owning/operating the legendary Aquarius Records. Now, she’s a widely celebrated working artist whose knot pieces and rope installations grace homes, galleries, museums, and public spaces around the globe.
Naturally, I was honored when she asked me to collaborate on her book project (Abrams 2019) The Year of Knots. Together, we mapped elements of her process and experience to organize, integrate, and articulate the many layered textures of her life and work.
It’s a gorgeous book, generous with wisdom, insights, and practical advice for how to leave your corporate life behind and pursue your preferred practice. Obviously, you should order a copy or three.
