Meditation Session
(limited to 12 participants)

May 11th from 10 - 11am


 

Both new and experienced practitioners of contemplative practice are welcome to join us in the gallery for a lightly guided mediation session focused on opening to the present moment. 

Half in Dream is a sculptural installation that bridges the gap between physical reality and the malleable shape of our perception. Situated on the border of the human and more-than-human, the sculpture offers a three-dimensional collage of collected natural ephemera from the outside looking in, and a two-dimensional projection of light and shadow from the inside looking out. The image formed is shifted through minutes and hours by the light of the star that propels all life, and by the turning of the earth that is our home. Night viewing brings an entirely different experience. It is never the same piece twice.

This exhibition was made possible with generous support from the Amherst Cultural Council, UMass Fine Arts Council and the College of Humanities and Fine Arts.
