My brother wrote this insightful post about art and being present.

Stand-Up Philosopher

In 2010, Marina Abramovic had a show “The Artist Is Present” at the MOMA, in which she invited anyone to sit in front of her for a minute of silence. It reminds me of one of my favorite scenes in Darjeeling Limited, in which all of the brothers and their mother just sit around a table in silence, communicating with their eyes. Anyway, I caught an interview with  Abramovic on the Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC and she said that people would actually break down and cry during the minute of silence. I think that speaks to the power of being fully present in the moment. I don’t think it had anything to do with Abramovic. It was just the power of being fully present in the moment.
