DON’T DENY THEM THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF YOUR EYESNovember 7th, 2010 |
Several months ago I attended an exquisite “performance” in which the artist barely moved. The performance artist Marina Abramović just sitting –in a long red gown –in a hard chair — in a barren space — in front of an empty table – from the time at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City opened in the morning and closed at night. One by one, individuals sat across from her table and they made silent eye contact for 5 minutes – 10 minutes – some 30 minutes. Their emotions were incredible. Many cried.
Don’t forget impact of such a “simple” action. It has beauty and power. And you own it. Don’t let it go to waste.
