    A participatory live art project, ‘Being with what is’ holds space for stillness, reflection, and acceptance. It is a call to sit in nature and mark a moment of presence using the automatic film camera provided. Then, step in front of the camera, allowing the artist, Bri Horne, to capture a portrait and the feelings stirred. Both photographs will be part of an installation staged at a later date.

    “In an age of speed…nothing could be more invigorating than going slow.

    In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention.

    And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.”

    —Pico Iyer in ‘The Art of Stillness’
