You get it when you win a race and lose it when you get laid off. Governments put it in their policies, preachers in their sermons, writers at the ends of their stories. Scientists say they've found it on the left side of the brain. Pursuing it, Americans spend US$20 billion a year on self-help and antidepressants. But wealth isn't working: people in the West are twice as rich as they were sixty years ago, yet no more satisfied with their lives. Twenty years from now, depression will be the biggest health burden in the world. Joy, euphoria, satisfaction, tranquility, triumph. It comes in many forms. So what makes you happy?

"French design is forever evolving and asking questions and creating ideas that I do not see happening as often in other big cities around the world. I think this plays a great role in why it continues diversifying and re-examining itself, which makes it unique."

Intersections (after Lautréamont) – 2015 CIFO Grants & Commissions Program Exhibition – Miami, USA

Caught in the dilemma between being the edge and the top, between being surface and symbol, the idea of reinventing Miami as ‘the capital of Latin America’ can be problematic. A sense of belonging and spreading roots have gained authority over the stereotypes of ‘the city of sun and frivolity’ or ‘the nostalgic city of temporary refuge.’ While that does not exclude the risk of replacing old labels with new, seen from another perspective, the willingness of acceptance, and even pride, in becoming ‘another capital for Latin Americans’ is remarkable.
