an evening of poetry celebrating great scientists and scientific discoveries
With the chorus of going to the penthouse floor, we were thinking about upward mobility, and thinking about escape. The more I sat with the song as I was making the record, I wanted to have more attention in the song where I was thinking about not just upward mobility and escaping, but also thinking about what it means to come from humble beginnings like I come from, a blue collar family, where people that are often ignored and forgotten about, and to elevate to more rarified air like I am now but to not forget about where you come from. And to use your power and status to uplift people and shine a light on places where we come from.
— John Legend
We practice, not for the sake of a perfect pose, but for the prana that stirs the blood and inspires change.
– Dena Kingsberg
The biggest lesson that I learned from this is that I am supported by a web of wonderful souls that surround me. What I could become is not just someone that creates artwork in a studio, but a catalyst for the community to make something together. Sharing skills and ideas and connecting to people, talking, and creating together is beautiful.
