The Silver Linings
For ages, I’ve been fascinated by beautiful visual moments, and I’m very pleased to have been able to record them in my book The Silver Linings.
The inception of my concept was at the beginning of the corona crisis. At one moment, a metaphorical switch was flipped, and we’ve had to overhaul our entire lives. This was a major change for creative students as well. In the “before times”, they used to be able to go to museums for inspiration, but now, they’re stuck at home. So they’re left with one big problem: where do they go to get inspired? This was an issue I was struggling with, until I was introduced to the philosophical school of Everyday Aesthetics. They believe that beauty isn’t just found fine art, but that there’s beauty and inspiration in the mundanest of activities. This philosophy was the solution to our problem. Is there anything more magnificent than drawing inspiration from everyday activities?
