In a world that seems to be getting “noisier” every day – and distraction is a constant temptation – is it possible to surround ourselves in pockets of silence?
Jeff Koterba’s world is filled with decibels – from a deafening crack of thunder when he was hit by lightning to an earthshaking rumble as the space shuttle carried his drawings into orbit.

Adjust your volume to a reasonable level – and find out how acts of silence can overcome some of our loudest creative challenges.
