Most people strive for a “good” life. The quality of life is a significant component of happiness. Greater satisfaction and pleasure is derived from the details of everyday life, such as drinking a cup of tea or smelling a bouquet of flowers. In these situations, positive outlook, attitude and emotion create chemical elements that affect happiness. This examination gives the audience the ability to discern moments of happiness, standing apart from the ordinary activities and essential objects that surround us. This project offers an opportunity for viewers to interact with the works. The primary purpose in re-contextualizing ordinary objects is to encourage viewers and invite the audience to enjoy the contentment of simple pleasures.
