Symbolism and minimalism

Minimalism and symbolism are two intertwined topics.  Although minimalism can mean different things to different people, it can generally be defined as an ability to shed the ideas or qualities we associate with objects or tradition; it is an attempt to see things for what they are.  As in my favourite example, a dress is never more than a dress; it is not confidence or a new start.  It is merely a symbol.
