Collect, Discard, Shuffle
Why don’t we want to discard the moments we collect?
Why do we choose to play or do things that only last for a moment?
How does capturing moments differ from experiencing moments?
What can you gain from a temporary experience?
Collect, Discard, Shuffle explores what it means to be in the moment and how we can appreciate impermanent experiences. Presenting videos and tiles from various materials inspired by the framework and play of mahjong [麻將], graphic designer Jacqueline Mang invites readers to appreciate transience and reflect on how impermanence can bring us back to the present.
Includes an interview with illustrator Karen Cheung, daughter of mahjong master Ricky Cheung, and a bibliography.
