"To be focused and dedicated to doing one simple thing can perhaps be the most transformative thing. That as narrow as it is, it can be infinitely deep." —Louise Despont

The Six-Sided Force Opening at Pioneer Works June 15th
"Louise Despont explores drawing as abstract meditations, employing and recasting a vocabulary of elements found within a set of architectural stencils and compasses, onto the pages of antique ledger books. For this exhibition, Despont has borrowed the geometries of beehives, gardens, and found architecture to offer balanced forms that engage past and present as indicators and provocations. In view of colony collapse, and other environmental concerns, the Six Sided Force investigates the subtle architectures, seen and unseen, between nature and human influence. 
Concurrent with the exhibition there will be a series of programs and events held in the garden at Pioneer Works which will engage and dialogue with these works further. More programming information will be available shortly.”http://pioneerworks.org/exhibitions/

THE SIX SIDED FORCE

"You see, gentlemen, if you eat honey, you will take into yourselves a tremendously strengthening force. If you have become too weak to develop within yourself this six-sided force that must flow from your head to the rest of your body, if you don’t have any longer the power to give your blood a certain degree of solidity so that this six-sided force is continually present, then honey must step in to make up for the loss, or, in the case of children, milk will be necessary. Children don’t have this six-sided force as yet — they still must obtain it through that which a woman produces in herself in the form of milk.”- Rudolf Steiner, Bees, page 51, 52​

“There are things that cannot ever occur with any precision. They are too big and too magnificent to be contained in mere facts. They are merely trying to occur, they are checking whether the ground of reality can carry them. And they quickly withdraw, fearing to loose their integrity in the frailty of realization. ”
