An Abstract Power

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 2:45 AM

Two characters named "Black" and "White" debate religion and the afterlife in the Cormac McCarthy play "The Sunset Limited."

The play opened in Chicago in a Steppenwolf Theatre production on May 18, 2006.

A New York Times  theater review from All Hallows' Eve, 2006—

"…there is an abstract power in the mysteriousness of Mr. McCarthy’s
vision’s allowing for a multitude of interpretations." –Jason Zinoman

The current New Yorker  (Feb.14) has a note
by Lillian Ross on the same play— "Two-Man Show: O Death"

Some purely visual black-and-white variations that are less dramatic, but have their own "abstract power"—

A book cover pictured here last November to contrast with
"the sound and fury of the rarified Manhattan art world"—

and a web page with multiple interpretations of the book cover's pattern—

A synchronicity— The first version of "Symmetry Framed" was done
on May 18, 2006— the day "The Sunset Limited" opened.

Another synchronicity relates the mathematics underlying
such patterns to the Halloween date of the above review.
See "To Announce a Faith," from October 31, 2006.
