ART PROJECT
"The art project "The Culture of Happiness" is not about peak experiences, it's about mental and behavioral strategies, inner convictions and internal settings, competencies and skills that make us all happy or unhappy in the long term.

I asked myself simple questions: how to use the power of art to support people in the search for their happiness, how can we build a dialogue with creative works so that they make us more stable and harmonious in this world?" Andrey Veber, founder, producer, artist

notPerfect
To see and love your imperfection

The story of one defective snapshot
I'm picking out pictures for the exhibition.
Some of them I put aside as unsuitable. Elza (my wife) asks:

"Andrey, what's wrong with them, isn't it cool?"

But I see a photo marriage. When the quadcopter takes a panorama, it pastes three or more pictures depending on the size. If there is a very strong wind and the stabilization system does not cope with it, a defect is visible in the place of paste like a slightly smeared joint...

.... And so I look at this picture and see the marriage, but Elza sees beauty. It's just like life: where you look, what you pay more attention to that is what you see after all. It is the reticular activating system that works in our brain. To put it simply, where the focus is sent, there is energy out there.

I look at me in the mirror - here I am not perfect, not Brad Pitt at all. Experts will say: "Here you have a belly without abs, crooked teeth, here he is roundshouldered and so on". It's strange, because for my wife, mom and children, I'm a handsome man.

I look at how I make my forum – it is so imperfect, with a lot of marriage, defects and blunders. Experts will say: "Well, who does that, everything is at the last minute, without a budget, business processes are not lined up, communication is with errors ...." It's strange, but for others, this is perfection itself and an example to follow.

I look at how I take my photos - they are also not perfect and with a lot of marriage. Experts will say: "here the color correction is bad, there is no composition, and, in general, Andrey, why the road is interrupted in this picture, it's wrong...." But maybe my photos are beautiful for the universe.

Well, at least for one person it is. And you've never noticed these defects. Or maybe these defects are not so important? Or maybe they are beautiful on the contrary, because an ordinary photo turns into something else, into an Art object with its own history? When you look at a photo as a puzzle and don't understand: how is it, what kind of glitch do I have?

And who are these experts who are constantly telling me about imperfection? When did they stuck in my head and started controlling my choice and my life? Is it really necessary to absolutely trust their persistent recommendations?

The idea to collect all my defective works and make a collection "notPerfect" was born. Do not take those photos that are perfect, but choose those that didn't work out instead. Should I give up on these experts and do it my way?

This collection will be about our beautiful imperfection, about our daily choice - "to see the beauty of the world as a whole or to see its imperfection in details." Or probably it will be about how to love this imperfection and give it some space in this world. To realize that this imperfection is exactly your uniqueness, what the universe really needs.

Why
For the last seven years I have been working on the topic of happiness and studying the world best practices of human well-being. Last year I immersed myself in art and now I want to connect these two huge topics. I want to find out how art can influence people's happiness, make them more free, harmonious, creative, curious and prosperous in all spheres of life. I'd like to do an art project that will support people in their pursuit of happiness.
