Item description for Nick Waplington: You Love Life by Franz Kafka...
Nick Waplington, photographer of the ordinary, again turns his lens on daily life. In this new book of photographs, taken throughout the 90s, Waplington searches for the Higgs, often called the God particle. To discover the Higgs--which might flash across Atlas's layered detectors for a microsecond--researchers will have to process a staggering amount of information. To paraphrase the words of Kafka, "You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice and will roll in ecstasy at your feet."

More About Franz Kafka
FRANZ KAFKA was born in Prague in 1883. Although his passion was for writing, it never served as a livelihood and only a handful of his stories were published before he died of tuberculosis at the age of forty. Though largely unknown during his lifetime, he has come to be regarded as one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. His short story The Metamorphosis, originally written in German in 1915, is considered to be his masterpiece.
PETER KUPER'S fascination with entomology began at the age of five but was supplanted by his discovery of comic books several years later. Thanks to Franz Kafka, Kuper no longer has to choose between the two. His comics and illustrations appear regularly in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Mad, for which he draws Spy vs Spy every month. Give It Up!, his first collection of Kafka adaptations, was published in 1995."
