JOIN THE RUBIN FOR PARTICIPATORY INSTALLATION "THE LOTUS EFFECT"

lotus effect rubin museum

The Rubin Museum of Art is an arts and culture hub powering connections between contemporary life and the world of the Himalayas. The Rubin has recently launched a new participatory installation, The Lotus Effect, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lotuses take root in murky waters and bloom above the surface, giving them important symbolic resonances. For The Lotus Effect, the Rubin invites the public to fold a lotus flower and dedicate their origami creation to someone or something that has helped them overcome a challenging time. When the Rubin reopens, people can contribute their folded piece to an installation in the museum that will serve as a community-built symbol of gratitude and resilience. Brooklyn-based origami artist and engineer Uttam Grandhi has provided video instructions to create a folded lotus. While the Rubin is closed, participants can share photographs of folded lotus creations on social media using the #TheLotusEffect and tagging @RubinMuseum.

Wellness Couture’s results indicate many individuals’ chronic health issues are rooted in their bodies’ sensitivities and nutrient deficiencies. Dr. Barrett initially found this to be true in her own life, healing herself from a number of chronic health ailments. Her success tailoring custom-made wellness programs for clients led her to partner with Cenegenics NYC on Wall Street, where she leads the Advanced Food and Nutrient Testing Program. Virtual telehealth and gut health testing are now offered remotely.
