In his seminal work, FLOW: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, Csíkszentmihályi outlines his theory that people are happiest when they are in a state of flow— a state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity at hand and the situation. The meaning of FLOW – as a way of creating, a way of working, and a way of living, is central to our proposition, in that it portrays happiness as a state of mind which can occur in almost all disciplines.
It is a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. The unifying experience of FLOW, with it’s focus on process, not result, is the common ground on which we base this proposition. The exhibition will present new works of performance, visual art, photography and moving image. An opening reception, artist talk and finissage is planned.
