Sky and Sea

Essay-Exhibition, work-in-progress

This work is a constellation of notes to the late theoretical physicist David Bohm, a protege of Albert Einstein and a close associate of the philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti. At its epicentre is a historic conversation between Einstein and poet-philosopher Rabindranath Tagore at the former’s summer house near the south of Berlin. This dialogue that Einstein later declared ‘unsuccessful’ becomes a pivot on which to examine a curious binary: that of a modern science with Northern/Western/Euro-American roots and a modern dance with Southern/Eastern/Asian wings.
