  11. Feel I love Modernist style and leanings. I remember as

    a child staring at the ceiling and wishing I could paint it or create a jungle on it. It was so clean, white and uncluttered. This installation, to the right is: Kichka's Breakfast (Daniel Spoerri 1960) reminded me of that longing. I like that the museum feels like home to me and in many ways it highlights all my major interests: Modern Art, Startups, Technology and Art in Business Kichka's Breakfast (Daniel Spoerri 1960)
