The Simple Things
The Simple Things is an art project which was inspired by the creative individuals Takashi Murakami and Pharrell Williams. The idea behind the work how we overlook the simple things in life, hence the title. Pharrell choose seven of his most cherished items which are individually worth next to nothing and then made the items out of the earth's most precious stone and metals. This is supposed to be ironic as these are the things that we overlook but truly care for. Pharrell says it all better. He is such an intelligent forward thinking human and still remains so grounded. He often blesses his good fortune but you never reach heights like he does without something special.
This clip showcases Pharrell's intellect even if he is interviewed by a complete spastic. He thinks on another level. This is the type of person who inspires... I once heard him asked
“Would you say you set trends?”
“I escape trends.”
