Éva Szombat: HAPPINESS BOOK AND EXHIBITION
I have often noticed the signs of unhappiness on myself and on my acquaintances that is why I decided to create a book which with its visuals and easy practices increases our feeling of happiness. Using kitsch was crucial, as I believe it is the art of happiness. I created all the photos without post manipulation, with prism filters, center
spot filters, star filters and softener filters got the special effects, reaching back to the world of old postcards and portraits. Quotes, thoughts about happiness, easy exercises to practice and tips are in all chapters. With a sector plan in the appendix we can find out whether we are happy or not. Then follows a weekly program plan, what if we practice will be happy by the end of the week for sure. Finally the happiness - translator, which translates the everyday bitter Hungarian, sentences into happiness.
