You Are Beautiful

You Are Beautiful is a simple, powerful statement which is incorporated into the over absorption of mass media and lifestyles that are wrapped in consumer culture.

This statement and the context in which someone finds it gives meaning to its message and purpose to this project. The intention behind this project is to reach beyond ourselves as individuals to make a difference by creating moments of positive self realization in those who happen across the statement: You Are Beautiful.

This is an example of how a really simple idea can develop into something really, well, beautiful. Most of the work on this website (which i stumbled across while having a look through Oh Joy! - not as sarcastic as it sounds...) is produced by a mysterious we. But the thing that really struck me with the piece below was the interactive element - the makers kept returning to find the cups re-arranged into interesting variations. I like the fact the re-arrangers must have felt they were part of something interesting and optimistic, and were happy to participate without quite knowing what it was.

You are beautiful
