This is a photograph I snapped of Josiah McElheny’s Endlessly Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism 2007, at the MFA in Boston…It’s not my art or concept so I hope no one minds me photographing this most spectacular, inventive vision. I love contemplating it regularly. It’s endlessly mesmerizing!
“Ten times a day something happens to me like this – some strengthening throb of amazement – some good sweet empathic ping and swell. This is the first, the wildest and the wisest thing I know: that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness.” – Mary Oliver
