Issue 33: Artist as Seer

Loading...

Sometimes, artists can serve as a kind of seer, a person who cultivates a certain quality of attention, who practices wonder and seeing and then tells us about it.

In this issue, our contributors give us the eyes to see a pulsing frog heart on the kitchen table, a young miner’s daughter caring for her father’s canaries, and earthworms squirming on the sidewalks during the storm. They teach us to show up, to listen, to pay attention. And, with each image, we grow in our understanding of what it means to see the unseen.
