The Morini Gallery at MMAS is committed to supporting our local artists.
In the words of Emily Hill, the journalist, being “in the zone” is delicious, immersive, and kinda trippy. Time collapses. Sound falls away. Suddenly we look up, and it’s 4 a.m. This tunnel-vision phenomenon is reported by athletes, creatives, and psychologists alike as a hyper-focused, sometimes spiritual, state of mind where anything is possible. It is where we become our most productive, creative, and powerful selves.
Artist’s were asked to take a moment to recall that feeling and show us examples of when they truly felt they were… “In the Zone”.
