How to be an Explorer of the World: Portable Art Life Museum, authored by Keri Smith, is a delightfully interactive and cheerful book guiding the readers how to explore and document Science and Art all around us in day-to-day basis.
Summary of the Book
Keri asserts that scientists and artists merely are what they are because of unending curiosity. They do look at the same things as we do, but they observe, analyse, collect information, compare, study, and document everything unlike and for the rest of us. She says that by precisely doing so, we can explore the world in similar ways that artists and scientists do. All of the world around us is mysterious and beautiful and needs to be observed. Like the futurist Jason Silva says, we have a responsibility to awe. And like Einstein had once famously said, I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious, it is important to keep the inquisitiveness alive and nurture it. It is this trait of man that has taken us to the far reaching places of the universe. A must have book for the curious minds!
