Description

100 Things That Make Me Happy borrows the form of the ubiquitous Post-it® note but its regular function has been disrupted. Flipping through the notes one discovers that they are already marked with handwritten words and phrases. The stack reveals itself as a list of a 100 things which constituted happiness for Barbara Balfour at some point in time. The individually screen-printed notes, reconstituted as a cellophane-covered block, ask the viewer to either let the book remain as a neat and tidy sculptural stack or to break it apart into 100 pieces and expose and disperse Balfour’s happiness.
