In 1829, Felix Mendelssohn fled the bustling city for a retreat to the Scottish Highlands, returning rejuvenated with the ideas that would become his Symphony No. 3. Nearly two centuries later, our Creative Chair Gabriel Kahane explores the consequences of a different kind of retreat – one from the digital space – while asking questions about the nature of convenience, privacy, free will, and democracy in the era of the internet.
