Video of workshop/studio rules
April 5, 2014 9:11 AM   Subscribe

I’m trying to remember/find this great video made that summarizes the rules of a New York artist’s workshop. The rules that I can remember are a couple shots where the narrator says “The correct response when someone asks you to perform a task is ‘I understand’. If there are parts to the task that are unclear to you, the correct response is ‘I do not understand’.”

I remember a few other things like a rule on not slamming the door, walking with purpose directly to your workspace, and not talking to people while they are working.

The video may have also been hosted on Vimeo, but I’m not sure.

Any idea what the name or URL of the video in question is? I’d be very appreciative as I’m going to see if I can have some of their rules adopted in my own workplace.

Thanks!

Psychopathic, cultish, elegant, hilarious and insightful, and with an incredible soundtrack (that probably wasn't cleared). Possibly the most perfect 20 minutes I've ever seen, excepting for the slight psychosis of course. Thanks!

I keep it bookmarked in the corner of my browser for my own workrooms. The ideas of Knolling and respecting the space have changed the way I work. Other people who come here sense that and it puts them at ease - even when there is a maelstrom of activity.
