From the author of 'Homo Deus' and 'Sapiens', Yuval Noah Harari’s new book '21 Lessons for the 21st Century' grapples with a world that is increasingly hard to comprehend. Featured on the front cover is one of Quinn iris painting from the 'We Share of Chemistry With the Stars'.
Quinn's "We Share our History with the Stars" reflect the fact that, in the age of the internet, the visual sense dominates our perception of the world. The eye is traditionally seen as a mirror of the soul but it is also a kind of microscopic map of an individual's identity, since each person's is unique. Furthermore, in the middle there is a black hole with the pupil becoming a profound expression of the ambiguity which is at the heart of our existence. Similarly, Harari’s book takes us on a journey of today’s most urgent issues, individual concerns and the challenge of maintaining our focus and attention in the face of constant and destabilising change.
