Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The word 'atone' originates in Middle English from words "at one." Therefore, atonement really is an activity that brings two into one and its manner of operation is revealed in its structure. This is not a Hegelian synthesis but rather the acknowledgment of individual constitutive units and their combination as the third; 1+1=3, ""the sum is greater than its parts" trope. But just like the sum of parts is more than just the parts themselves, this procedure points towards the possibility of infinite recursion: 1+1=3 but what is "1+1=3" + "1+1=3"? I think this is what atonement really looks like.
