Issue 39: Magnificent Frailty

Loading...

For this issue of Ruminate, we explore life's magnificent frailty. What sublime experiences make us recognize the frailty of life? How is it possible to live in a world where an individual life seems so slight yet also so important? And how does art both provoke and trouble this space of magnificent frailty? Join us in exploring and reflecting on these questions and much more!
