Grapefruit by Yoko Ono

Abstract

Yoko Ono’s book of instructions and drawings sheds light on how to enjoy and and take in life simply. The illustrations are imple and straightforward. The instructions may seem silly or strange to the reader at first. Ono’s goal is to help us to take in the little things one by one and cherish the little things in life. An early example of conceptual art, it contains a series of “event scores” that replace the physical work of art. The book is written lyrically and as poems or as a haiku.
