Eric Otto Wear


In Jin Shentian‘s Thirty-three Moments of Happiness, the 17th-century writer records the happiest moments of his life. Taking this as his starting point, Eric Wear talked to people about how they recalled their own moments of happiness, taking notes of the rhetoric and images in their replies. Within the minimal setting, visitors could sit down, enjoy tea and examine the notes he recorded.
