How Can You Be Serious?

Title

How Can You Be Serious?

Description

Terry Rathje is working on his MFA at the University of Iowa. He is also currently a design instructor at Western Illinois University.
Rathje writes: my art is about rearranging reality. I spend half my time taking things apart and learning how they are made, and the other half putting them back together and learning about myself.<br>By observing and internalizing how the world is put together, the world inside and the world outside meet in some sort of strange juxtaposition that I really don't understand until the process is done. This meeting of the inside world and the outside world is at the heart of what I do.
