“Will Happiness find me” by Peter Fischli and David Weiss | Book Review
I believe that exploring what’s behind and inside our minds is even more interesting than what we can create sometimes. Or at least, it can help us get into that one’s life and to understand how that person became who he or she is.
I believe that the ideas that we have are just the product of everything that surround us.
I consider myself a curious human being and because of that I like to explore and get to know as much as I can about anything. Literally everything: from how things works to how other people live and how they think.
Lots of these things can be found in books, of course, those fascinating objects that use to keep us up at night. Yeah, this is where the name comes from! 🙂
I already have the Inspirational Tuesday collection to share with you all the new artists and artworks I find around the web, they tickle my imagination and inspire me, but I realized I never got to talk about books yet ad they are a huge part too.
So I said to myself “what about a whole column?” and this is how I got here!
To open this new topic, I choose this tiny and very black and white book. You may think it’s just because of its aesthetic (and you’d be right somehow, because there is no way that a fully black book wouldn’t draw my attention!) but it’s also because I can relate so much with this book.
This is a collection of random thoughts, from very funny and nonsense ones to some deeper one. From page to page you get inside the author’s mind and build you everyday around these handwritten sentences. There’s no need to live in the same city, to have the same job, to be a man or a woman: you are a thinking being and you’ll get to think about life and time far or soon.
Sometimes I laughed, sometimes I felt dragged down into sadness, sometimes I felt empty. But my overall sensation was to be human just like someone else.
I felt like I could accept myself.
This is what I drew from this small book and the reason why I wanted to share it with you.
