Spotted: Wizards on broomsticks in the city of Boston

Spotted: Wizards on broomsticks in the city of Boston

As a copywriting, media relations, and digital communications firm located in the bustling Kendall Square, we love venturing out into the city scene and discovering all that the streets of Boston have to offer.

You never know what you’re going to find – street performers playing great beats on bucket brims, vendors selling the latest Red Sox apparel, and wizards and witches playing Quidditch in the Boston Commons.

Four years ago, Emerson College (Prompt Boston’s neighbor, located on the other side of the Charles River) formed its own Quidditch club based off the hit novel-turned-movie series, Harry Potter.

However, this past weekend, Boston.com reported that city park officials swept the broom players out of the Common, banning the students from using the public space for games and practices until a permit is obtained. In the past, the college has secured a permit, but miscommunication barred the Quidditch club from getting the magic pass this year.

For those of you unfamiliar with Harry Potter -isms, Muggle (non-magical humans, like the majority of Emerson College students) Quidditch consists of two teams of seven players, who run (‘fly’) with brooms between their legs as they toss around a deflated volleyball (the ‘Quaffle’scoring ball) through hoops that act as goal posts. As if that didn’t sound distracting enough, two other balls (‘Bludgers’ – like a kickball aimed at your face) are used to disrupt scoring.

So, the next time you find yourself in the middle of the city with nothing to do (which is near impossible), we recommend trying something new like joining a Quidditch league – you may just be the next Muggle champion of Quidditch.

MIT sculpture provides some Monday morning motivation

MIT sculpture provides some Monday morning motivation

Today is a rainy Monday; most commuters this morning clutched a cup of coffee and an umbrella while speed walking to their destination.  However, even with the dreary weather, Kendall Square is still bustling with the sound of cars, mass transit, and pedestrians.

For those of you who don’t have the pleasure of working in Kendall Square, it’s not just full of technology companies and start-ups — it’s also home to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  And one of our favorite things about the Institute is its ability to constantly reinvent itself.  Case and point — MIT’s Alchemist — the big piece of art crammed into the chaotic big city mix.

The Alchemist is a stainless steel sculpture crafted by Spanish contemporary artist Jaume Plensa, in honor of MIT’s 150 year anniversary.  As a digital communications and public relations office in the midst of all the bustle in Kendall Square, we couldn’t help but glance at the figure every time we strolled by Massachusetts Avenue and the Stratton Student Center.

And here comes the good news – the sculpture, which was originally only to be exhibited for one year, is here to stay thanks to a donation made by an anonymous MIT alumnus.

The steel sculpture is painted white and shaped as a sitting man, clutching his knees.  When taking a closer look at it, the man’s body is comprised of a series of intricate numbers and symbols.  The piece is part of a series of Plensa’s other works, Nomade (2010) and El Alma Del Ebro (2010), which feature stainless steel letters, instead of numbers.

Here at Prompt, we think the statue is both an inspiration and a sight to see.  Even with all of the busy city sights and sounds around us, the piece captures our attention and gives us enough stimulation to somehow make it past this dreary, yet still manic, Monday.
