You know how when you meet someone’s family, they make more sense to you? When artists Sarah and Joseph Belknap gave us a tour of their Cicero studio, it all clicked. Bare brick walls with exposed pipes enclose their raw, experimental workspace where this married duo brainstorm, experiment, and perfect each of their designs (including work for an exhibit at the MCA). We spotted everything from splattered paint and chalk to gas masks. Is it messy? Sure. But we’d take it over a boring office in a heartbeat.
