Everything is Connected - Reimagining the World One Postcard at a Time
Keri Smith's Everything is Connected is not just a book of postcards. It's a series of experiments designed to shake us out of our ruts. Through the ingenious use of the common postcard, Keri Smith encourages us to embark on a quest to reanimate everyday life. No matter how hard we try, everyday life always becomes predictable. From the toothpaste we use and the clothing we wear, to the way we talk and what we do in our free time, we follow the same habits, most likely because someone told us to, or we never really gave it much thought to begin with. But what if we could shape our lives into our own vision, informed with our own desires and passions? What if we had the power to create our own realities whenever we wished - just by changing the way we perform simple tasks? Keri Smith is a bestselling author, illustrator, and thinker. Her books demonstrate a 'learn by doing' approach, and are being used in school curriculums all over the world as a way of fostering non-traditional methods of creative exploration. She also teaches and conducts workshops based on her techniques throughout North America. Her works include Wreck this Journal, This is Not A Book, How to Be an Explorer of the World, Mess and Finish This Book, as well as Wreck This App and This is Not an App.
