You make rock candy by supersaturating boiling water with sugar, dropping a string into it, and letting it cool. This is what Jerónimo Rüedi (known best as a painter) has done in his books, but by dropping his mind into our world supersaturated with images and information. And instead of candy we get something sweeter than those crystals of pure sugar: books that —in how they shit on false prophets; in how they weaponize dark humor against globalism’s fatally accelerating greed; in how they damn the very foundations of how we make sense of our world— remind us to ground our lives in the parts of the world that haven’t been sold off yet, that still, in the face of it all, prioritize real attention. Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously is a primer on how to break apart the platitudes of one’s time in order to piece them together again in a radically new vision, based on personal convictions rather than passive consumption. Whether you’re Steve Jobs or Aristotle, sleep with one eye open: you’re not making the sense you think you are.
