Wouldn’t we all like to leave a mark? I’m finding out there is a difference between just making something great and making something that matters. Of course that is objective. And what matters doesn’t necessarily need to be measured quantitatively. If what we make, create, and do matters just to our own well-being and a few close friends, can we be satisfied with ‘just that’? This is the heavy question regarding how we measure our happiness.

The way we read is significantly changing. Not just because of e-readers, but mainly because there is so much more info coming at us to process. Libraries have had to re-market themselves more than any other medium. From downloaded classics on a NY subway train to scaled-down mini libraries in upscale hotel lobbies, literature has been made super accessible. Instead of just recycling the books, this artist has shown the full circle of a book. From tree to paper to book to tree. I love all life cycle metaphors.
Create. Make. Distort. The ultimate in surrealism.
Um, don’t do this. But get at it.
