What is the philosophy behind the interactive Space Utopian sticker art?

What would you change if you had a chance to reset the world and improve it for future generations? Space Utopian Art tries to trigger the soul who comes across this sticker by planting a seed for small conscientious shifts. Whether they see it on a light switch at their friend’s apartment, a toilet’s flush button in their favorite bar, or a pedestrian button on their way to work, I want people to visualize a hard reset. What should improve in this vale of tears in which they live? These stickers, designed to interact with as many souls as possible, should make them wonder about what needs to change so that they and possibly the remaining 99% out there can live a more fulfilling and equitable life. What would our world look like if we reset our planet to its factory settings?

The world can only change from within.

This interactive slap tag is designed to combat the negative spiral that has taken hold of our society by inspiring people to write love letters. It doesn’t really matter if they send loving messages through snail mail, email, or as a text message to their loved ones, themselves, or even complete strangers they admire and appreciate. Just as long as we collectively start spreading more love than hate. Because we are divided and need to come together again, as one global community. That said, love might be the answer to all our woes. So, why not spread it freely more often?

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

It’s always a good idea to occasionally check in with yourself and assess your life. Take stock of where you have been, where you are, and where you are going. This sticker is designed to encourage people to take some time to ponder this philosophical question: “How are you living?” and reflect on where they currently are in their lives. Thus, hopefully, triggering the radiant souls who lay eyes on this slap tag to venture on a quest that will help them answer various hard questions. For example, are they still on the right path—heading towards the goals which excite them? Are they genuinely proud of who they have become? Are they contributing to a better, more balanced, and more equitable world?

Hard choices, easy life. Easy choices, hard life.
