“DISCUS, starred with premonitions, throw yourself out of yourself.”
Transformation is at the heart of creativity, invention, construction, exploration and of our own individual lives as well. What attracts us most in art, nature and cultural life – what fills us most with awe – is transformation: the capacity to change and be changed.
And the bravest among us –the artists, visionaries, revolutionaries and pioneers – take the pure risk of possibility. To be truly alive means to both accept and desire transformation. There’s an old story from India of a gambler who sees his face in every toss of the dice. To accept transformation is to know we don’t know who we’ll be tomorrow, and to embrace that fact. Transformation is possibility.
