I Love Public Art, Part II.

Coin art from Amsterdam by artist Stephan Sagmeister. In case you can’t read it, it says: “Obsessions Make My Life Worse and My Work Better.” It was commissioned back in 2008 by Urban Play for the project Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far.

Not only is it really, really pretty (the font!) but also scarily true. You know how sometimes things knock you over with their sudden and surprising applicability? Like someone wrote or created something that was clearly (yes, I know this is self-aggrandizing and self-centered and all sorts of solipsistic junk, but that’s how it feels) intended just for you? That just happened.
