Frammenti di Luce

Benvenuto

“Frammenti di Luce” fornisce un forum dove artisti e critici di molti paesi possono condividere pensieri, interessi e idee nel campo delle arti e della spiritualità, nonché il potere dell’espressione creativa per “umanizzare” la nostra cultura e per guarire e trasformare le vite. Il blog include sia estratti di saggi pubblicati, sia riflessioni originali di artisti, scrittori, musicisti e professionisti del teatro. Invitiamo i lettori a rispondere a questi testi pubblicati con la speranza di favorire la conversazione, la riflessione e la discussione su fede e creatività, preghiera contemplativa ed esperienza estetica, sulla liturgia Cristiana e la bellezza e sui temi connessi.

Il blog trae la sua energia dalle stagioni dell’Anno Ecclesiastico e dalle feste importanti condivise. Se desiderate partecipare come utenti regolari o come ospiti o se avete idee per argomenti di conversazione, inviate una email ad Lillian Miao.

Revealing the Light

Within the season of Lent we may open ourselves in new ways to the quiet mystery of Jesus’ own time in the desert as he prepared to begin his public ministry.

Artist Soo Sunny Park’s 2013 shimmering installation Unwoven Light explores the ephemeral qualities of light and how light affects our perceptions of architectural space. Comprised of thirty-seven sections of chain-link fence embedded with translucent sections of Plexiglas, the structure of chain-link fencing is similar to the grid of fibers arranged horizontally and vertically on a weaving loom. Park, however uses the grid structure as a means to “unweave.”

“Like a net, the sculpture is a filter that is meant to capture the light that is already there and force it to reveal itself.” —Soo Sunny Park

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature—trees, flowers, grass—grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silenceWe need silence to be able to touch souls.—Mother Teresa
