Happiness: Harp Seal

Artist: Mark Rumsey
Medium: Color transfer, 1 of 2
Dimensions: 12" x 12"
Notes: 2013. Mark Rumsey: “Trying to find purpose in my use of social media I have transformed my personal Facebook page into Hapi Ness, where I post pictures of baby animals. The images are gleaned from the web and re-presented on my page. From the collected images I have made a series of transfer prints that include a QR code to link the Facebook page. The impetus for the project is two-fold: Research suggests that social media makes people less happy. Research suggests that images of baby animals makes people more happy."
