Thoughts on I and We
This book is an attempt to think through life and the universe in graphic-design terms. With concise drawings and brief texts,
illustrator and designer Ruida Si quietly shows humanity in the grip of a dawning realization about its own collectivity.
Facing the imminent collapse of the ecosystem, humanity must prepare to replace “I” with “we” –
“we” defined in a utopian spirit as a subject transcending generations and individuals.
The simple and clear visuals are the product of Si's extensive and sophisticated knowledge of information,
pattern and rhythm – and they deliver her message with great clarity and simplicity.
Muji art director Kenya Hara, with whom Si studied, provided a foreword.
