Symmetrical Performance

The fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. He who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feel amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle. – Albert Einstein, The World As I See It, 1934All true artists occupy the space of mystery, the space between rigor and fantasy. That small and fragile personal area of inspiration is where the discipline of an expertise is distanced from performance. It is the space where personal, individual talent and endeavor encounter the potential of an art. A privileged space of the individual made possible only through collective and collaborative acts.Two symmetrical places of performance – one interior and one exterior – for Harvard University and Allston, Massachusetts.
