Keri Smith's Everything is Connected is not just a book of postcards. It's a series of experiments designed to shake us out of our ruts. Through the ingenious use of the common postcard, Keri Smith encourages us to embark on a quest to reanimate everyday life. No matter how hard we try, everyday life always becomes predictable. From the toothpaste we use and the clothing we wear, to the way we talk and what we do in our free time, we follow the same habits, most likely because someone told us to, or we never really gave it much thought to begin with. But what if we could shape our lives into our own vision, informed with our own desires and passions? What if we had the power to create our own realities whenever we wished - just by changing the way we perform simple tasks?
