Minimalist sculpture on the other hand is greatly focused on the materials (see David Smith and Donald Judd).
Most modern philosophies could also be considered minimalistic in that they resort to providing only a limited set of valued elements as opposed to everything a person needs to live their life, for example a philosophy centered around only money.

 Minimalist Design for Documentation
Developed by Dr. John Carroll, the minimalist model is the subject of many papers in the human factors and documentation fields.
Minimalist documentation assumes that the user will not follow a predictable sequence, will not read every word, and will start acting on the information in very little time.
However, the key to a minimalist presentation is to place essential topics at the top of the hierarchy and less frequently used or less important topics deeper in the hierarchy.

Given the name of this group, it may be too much to ask that there be a greater emphasis on minimalism than on deserts, but perhaps we could try to be careful about what desert shots are submitted.
The trees, broken rock-looking part of the beach, the buoy, clouds, mountain and horizon all meet right at the top of the photo, which is a lot of 'activity' compared to the simple, clear line of the foam meeting the sand.
I'd like to have a relatively clear definition of "minimalist landscape" so that we can start to be more strict about what is in the photo pool.

It then proceeds to works by such early minimalist U.S. flag-bearers as Ellsworth Kelly, Ad Reinhardt and Frank Stella, and on to Robert Ryman, Brice Marden, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Agnes Martin, Robert Mangold and Carl Andre.
Minimalist and other modern art forms have given birth to such descriptive gobbledygook ascribing meaning and importance to works that are best enjoyed for their instant visual impact rather than a scholarly analysis couched in almost meaningless terms.
The early monochromatic canvases and multi-panel paintings by Reinhardt, Stella, Kelly, Ryman, Marden, and Mangold, enlivened only by paint textures or even the shadow of the viewer, are all too familiar, and walking over Andre's carpet of square steel plates is no longer a guilty thrill.

What was it about the brazenly simple early minimalist style that seduced hundreds of complexity-loving proto- or postserialists like myself to strip down to a handful of pitches?
Well, postserialism, as I saw it, was all about subtlety: the echo of a pitch cell, the gradual transformation of register, underlying rhythmic repetitions and retrogrades.

 MINIMALISM
There are examples of the Minimalist theory being exercised as early as the 18th century when Goethe constructed an Altar of Good Fortune made simply of a stone sphere and cube.
From the 1920s artists such as Malevich and Duchamp produced works in the Minimalist vein but the movement is known chiefly by its American exponents such as Dan Flavin, Carl Andre, Ellsworth Kelly and Donald Judd who reacted against Abstract Expressionism in their stark canvases, sculptures and installations.
Minimal Art is related to a number of other movements such as Conceptual Art in the way the finished work exists merely to convey a theory, Pop Art in their shared fascination with the impersonal and Land Art in the construction of simple shapes.
