Feeling Creatively Blocked? Listen To Sir Benedict Cumberbatch



Sol LeWitt, an American Artist who passed away in 2007, once wrote a letter to Eva Hesse, an American sculptor (1936 – 1970), with a focus on motivating her, but also relighting a creative spark.

This letter was later read on stage at a London event called Letters Live by Sir Benedict Cumberbatch, who we know as a popular English actor.

Cumberbatch puts everything into this performance and really goes to show the differences between reading, and watching, in terms of the effectiveness of a live event.

Letters Live is a reoccurring event hosed at London’s iconic Freemasons’ Hall. The last event that took place was in October last month, and featured Gillian Anderson (X-Files), Jude Law, and a range of other well-known...

This is the art of Sol LeWitt, the person who wrote the letter that Cumberbatch is reading.

These are panoramas that I took of Sol LeWitt's art installations at the MOCA, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams in the western part of the state. His art is on two floors. The human in one of the photos is my husband. He had a museum program in his back pocket which created the unexpected illusion that he was inserted in the painting.

Thanks for sharing Krena! It's good to see Sol's art as I am not familiar with his work, just with what I researched fro this article.

He had a museum program in his back pocket which created the unexpected illusion that he was inserted in the painting.
It does look like he is part of the image!

I am sorry, but it is hard to see the huge scale of his art, because of the way I shot his work, though a better indicator is that you can see it is taller than my husband. The paintings are 30-40 feet long (an estimate after my husband and I discussed it).
