You will hear thunder and remember me,
and think: she wanted storms...

"A visit to a museum is a search for beauty, truth, and meaning in our lives. Go to museums as often as you can." - artist Maira Kalman at TEDxMet

We had a wonderful time at TEDxMet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Saturday! The stellar lineup included neuroscientist Eric Kandel, writer Andrew Solomon, and legendary choreographer Bill T. Jones.  
We’ll share the videos as soon as they’re posted, but in the meantime, one of our favorite quotes from the day.

What’s your favorite museum?

The Twisted Trees of Slope Point, New Zealand

Slope Point is at the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand. The air streams loop the ocean, unobstructed for 2000 miles, until they reach Slope Point causing incredibly strong winds. In fact, the winds are so strong and persistent here that they perpetually warp and twist the trees into these crooked, wind-swept shapes. 

Slope Point is generally uninhabited, except for the herds of sheep that graze the land. There are no roads leading here, however backpackers regularly make the short 20-minute walk to see the fascinating tree formations that only Mother Nature could create. However there is no public access during the lambing season from September to November.

We’ve had similar trees up here before, but the illusion of kinetic energy in these tortured shapes is just so cool. Hard to imagine they’re frozen in gestures of such extreme motion. —MN
