This photograph is from the Creating Your Vision Event held at kinetic sculpture artist, David Lang’s studio in Natick, Massachusetts. The model is Meredith Wells, professional ballet dancer and trapeze artist. Meredith interacted with David’s sculpture piece, “Journey . . .” to a musical score provided by the piece itself.
This was a wonderful and powerful experience for all in attendance.
Please consider attending a future Creating Your Vision Event held at a different photogenic location with a model, art, music all providing a uniquely experiential memory.

“We’ve all heard that the unexamined life is not worth living, but consider too that the unlived life is not worth examining.”
~Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way
“My funeral,” the Blue Man said. “Look at the mourners. Some did not even know me well, yet they came. Why? Did you ever wonder? Why people gather when others die? Why people feel they should?
“It is because the human spirit knows, deep down, that all lives intersect. That death doesn’t just take someone, it misses someone else, and in the small distance between being taken and being missed, lives are changed.
“You say you should have died instead of me. But during my time on earth, people died instead of me, too. It happens every day. When lightning strikes a minute after you are gone, or an airplane crashes that you might have been on. When your colleague falls ill and you do not. We think such things are random. But there is a balance to it all. One withers, another grows. Birth and death are part of a whole.
“It is why we are drawn to babies . . .” He turned to the mourners. “And to funerals.”
~Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven
