It's sometimes hard to convey to my students what "being present" really means or what it looks like. I try to find new ways of expressing it. I had an idea that I think may help. In the film "Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present" there is a segment in which she sits at a table in a huge gallery at MOMA and invites audience members one at a time to sit with her for one minute. It's very moving because she is 100% present with each person. She really sees each one. I need to show them that clip.
