The Happiness Project—A Journey Through Silicon Valley
By Mazaccio & Drowilal
In 2014, the artists Mazaccio and Drowilal traveled to Silicon Valley in California, a now mythic spot that generates most of the technology we use every day.
The Happiness Project—A Journey through Silicon Valley reconstructs their journey through a series of colorful photographs, creating a subjective record of their encounters and experiences.
Exploring objects from this contemporary counterculture and probing the connection between technology and New Ageism, the imagery also touches on environmental awareness and the region’s intense fascination with sports. Still lifes punctuate the book, symbolizing how the great ideals of California now sit alongside the work of its corporations.
