Reflecting the desire to transcend the conflicts of life, to give an extra sheen to matter-of-fact reality are artists like Paul Cox, Martin Creed, Christian Jankowski, Liza Lou, Tracey Moffatt, Walter De Maria, Fiona Tan and Fred Tomaselli.

Their work glows with a zest for life and a belief in the meaningfulness of life. But beyond the visual, Shine is also a written quest to discover the ideals of the 21st century. Wilma St s Dreaming with Eyes Open discusses the works of art included- Bas Heijne presents the case for a revolution in our way of looking, for a gaze that first of all manifests itself as receptive- and philosopher Michel Onfray seeks to unravel the question: Where is happiness?
