Slow art in times of instant everything gives a context to bring together art perception and embodied awareness, to experience art without an expert, to contemplate, and to expand one's inner and outer attention. Art as opposed to entertainment is that which rewards lingering: the more you look the more you see, artworks start to move, to change in front of you, to tell stories in new ways.
We start this experience by a short into-the-body session of breathing, stretching and shifting attention to experiences of our body. We then spend time in individual contemplation of an artwork, taking in its inputs, tuning in to what it is telling us, and our responses to it. And finally we meet together and exchange these experiences with a group.
Slow Art is one of the modules of our project Personal Museum. To read more click here.
