As I’ve said so often in the past, the Prophet of the Lovely Star opined that artists connect directly with the sephira Binah when they are inspired and creating. Tauba Auerbach is an artist who works like a modern magician drawing on methods of science with the aims, and some of the techniques of spiritual questing. Here’s an excerpt from a New York Times feature:
“Since 2009, Auerbach — whose pronouns are they/them — has sustained a rigorous drive for investigating both scientific and spiritual concepts, drawing equal inspiration from the precision of mathematical proofs, the intuitive features of reiki (a form of energy healing), qi gong (a gentle system of movement) and the inherent entropy of the cosmos. Consequently, Auerbach doesn’t stick to one medium, favoring instead an eclectic mix of painting, photography, design, music, sculpture and typography. Combining the curiosity of a novice with the nimbleness of an expert, Auerbach offers with each project a truly refreshing contribution to contemporary art — namely, the conviction that the world is still full of wonder.”
