Building on Research - (The World Happiness Report, which ranks 156 countries by how happy their citizens consider themselves to be), of the 13,000 volunteers in London whose phones were located when users reported that they were happy, that the geo-data included proximity to rivers, lakes, canals and green spaces where air quality is higher and noise levels are lower. During interesting work, walking, sports, gardening, and bird watching, in all cases compared to the sedentary lifestyle at home.
The pause — is about the surrounding context of speed, multitasking, exhaustive and dispersed thoughts, and a person.
About the fact that we must learn to have the time and opportunity to stop, think critically or just be happy.
Learn to mark time in moments, and not in minutes, because what matters is not what you have, but how you live.
To learn to do what you really want, and not what the atmosphere and context dictate, but we do not have time to stop and comprehend the processes around us in ordinary high-speed life.
And you don't have to be far from the city and noise. I wanted to make a piece of pause, calmness, peace, and pure contemplation of the mind, which could always be there as a reminder of what is important and valuable.
Collaging the atmosphere of a pause in the form of Anna's photographs with contemplation of mind and thoughts in the form of graphics and schematic interconnections of prints - we got Pause T-shirts with four reminders for us: from the importance of moments in time to feel and empathy.
