When Einstein Met Tagore

Collision and convergence in Truth and Beauty at the intersection of science and spirituality

“In February 1983 in Rochester, NY, I found a set of Compton’s Encyclopedias, (circa 1950), bound them together using thick rope, built a pyramidal structure, and hung them in my backyard. The piece is entitled, Books of Knowledge Standing Up Against the Elements that I photographed through seasonal changes and locations wherever I lived.” [more]
