Organization Man

Ursus Wehrli specializes in organizing items, people, even paintings; his new book tackles life’s smaller moments. From an interview with the artist:

I think it speaks to our complicated world because our days are full of decisions and sometimes it is really hard to decide what is right, what’s wrong and we have to fight against the mess and the chaos. I wouldn’t say it is a manifesto for a neat world, but I’m happy if it makes people think about the balance between chaos and order. Of course, we realise we need both poles and it’s the balance that makes life worth living.
