At Sol, one part of the wall is painted in magenta.
This color, discovered by Goethe, is a combination of red and violet,
which respectively are the lowest and highest colors of the visible spectrum.
Red is most heavy with long wavelengths signifying Roughness.
Violet is light with short wavelengths signifying Delicateness.
Hence, in Japan, violet is commonly used to represent the highest rank.
The words, “reason is formed by the height of culture and the height of animality” represent this ideology;
when the extremities of the vulgar and the refined exist, instead of combining both and diving it in half,
it is the intuition of going both directions simultaneously.
This is what is referred to as the Middle Way in Buddhism, meaning when exact opposites exist,
one does not take what is in the center but encloses them both.
Sol’s aim to synthesize the man-made, contemporary and western, with the natural, antique and eastern,
alludes to the meaning of the color magenta, which signifies a mixture of opposite colors.
Thus, magenta is the symbol of the Middle Way.

大惨事

我が子、カルムは最近思春期か、穴堀が得意です。
そこ、板やでと思うけど、せっせと掘って、ヤバいことになってきてます。
これではアカン、と、ジョイフルへ。
桃鉄風な柄の、イケてるクッションカーペットを購入。カルムスペースの床に唐突にそれを敷き詰めてみました。結構かわいい。
これで掘っても平気やねーと余裕ぶちかましてゆっくり食事、2Fへ上がったら。
桃鉄柄、ボロッボロ。
それ見た一同、ガックシ。音を立てて肩落としました・・・。
どーゆーこっちゃねんっっっ。
犬やと思ってなにやってもええと思うなよ、ボケっ、と思うけど、犬やからしゃーない。カーペット代払いやがれ、と思うも、金銭感覚なんてないもんね、キミには。
そんな風に生きれれば楽やろなー。勝手気ままやけど、それでも見習うべきところはあります、ね。
