“To Run ~ a prayer for Boston” Poem by Scott Poole

To Run
~a prayer for Boston

To run
is to rise above the weak spirit
is to take on pain
is to push pain in the chest
with both palms

stumbling over garbage,
gravel, fragments of life,

is to say I will take you
on in the street.
Every breath of mine
is a battering ram,

shoving, crushing,
swinging a hammer of air.

I am a body of fast moving blood
inhaling you
taking you in like a tank.
I will consume your hate.

I will run straight into you
as if you were a finish line of joy,
picking up the fallen along the way
and you will never stop me,
you will never
stop me.

Class today, April 10

Hello All – a reminder that today is work day. We should meet in N181 at 3 to have a short chat and check in with each other then you are free to work.  Karina and I  will be here around after that if you need anything.   Cole and Kerri are going to MOS to work on sound until 4 so they will not be here. SAMO is injured and will also be absent.  I am still waiting for the reports of the gameplan from 2 groups based on last week’s meetings.  Thank you Kelsey for your report.  See you later!

April 6th Symbiosis
Pozen center, North building Massachusetts collage of Art and Design.
Join Eventworks in an afternoon of science fair themed art viewing.
We are hosting an experimental art exhibition set up in a science fair style. Each artist will be present to talk about their work, their tools and, their making process. The focus is displaying the interconnected nature of scientific development and artistic fields. Many artistic mediums could not exist without the development and aid of scientific discovery. Examples of this relationship is the development the printing press, assembly lines which created the ability for multiples, the invention of the digital projector and later development of projection mapping, computer aided design which has allowed the invention of 3D printing, laser cutters and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) routers.
The exhibition will feature works that use both art and science to their fullest potential. Works to be exhibited will be sculptures, mechanical prototypes, mathematical models, soundscapes, biological studies and any other forms of work created through the use of both scientific and artistic method.
