But being back in the office isn't so bad! Plus it's raining in nyc today which doesn't make us wish we were still on vacation. Anyway, today's inspirational work comes from Iranian artist Farhad Moshiri, whose installation Life is Beautiful is made out of tiny knives embedded in the wall. While we're not usually fans of simple platitudes, we love the complexity of this piece and the confrontational aspect of the sharp knives. Yes, life is beautiful, but it can also have sharp edges.
