ANDANTE


 

The French mystic and philosopher Simone Weil wrote that “attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity”. Andante is an invitation to pause, to connect with your senses, to be in a room with others and not have to say or even see anything. It is conceived as a generous and patient walk into a cloud of attention and time.

The word andante refers to a type of musical movement that is moderately slow or distinct. It originates from the Italian word andare which means “to go”.
