The Bridge Day 5, morning: Creative Progress – site visits

“Creative Progress” – Creativity that transcends boundaries to give expression to our highest aspirations.

“Make of beauty your constant ideal. Beauty of soul, beauty of thought, beauty of feelings, beauty of action, beauty in work.’’ The Mother

The exploration of Creative Progress began with researchers, activists and artists from Auroville, India and abroad visiting the Matrimandir for a silent concentration. Symbolic of bridging the inner and the outer through art, we went on to an exhibition of works from different Aurovilian artists inspired by Satprem’s “On the way to Supermanhood’’ in Citadines. Aurovilian artists Chantal and Marco guided us through the exhibition and shared the intentions behind and methods used in the presented works. Moving into socially and environmentally engaged art, we gathered around an installation “The Sea speaks’’, a collaborative project between visiting artist Ravi Agarwal and Aurovilian sculptor N. Murti, on display next to the ACUR Townhall. At “Dustudio’’ architecture studio in the Auroville community Swayam we learned about the art of designing and constructing buildings. The morning was concluded with a Korean silent lunch.
