My Office Art Book (OAB) is a project I began as a way to keep the inspirational images and quotes that were posted around my office desk, in one small and portable place, in the hopes that I would be able to leave my job with little to pack up. It soon morphed into a journal telling my tale of workplace burn-out and how I attempted to regain a sense of myself within the office by creating the OAB within the confines of the office and using as many office supplies that were available to me.
The subtitle of OAB is “GAMAN – to bear the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity”. The interactive frontispiece opens to reveal a quote from Winston Churchill that inspires the contents of the OAB: “We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself, the means of inspiration and survival”.
