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.

Smoke Party!2

先日に引き続き、2度目のSmoke Party。
人数が多過ぎて誰が誰だかわからんかった、ではあまり意味を成さないので、2日に分けてみたのです。
今回は生憎の雨。でもそんなことはお構い無し。家中に漂う燻製香が素敵。

前回と今回で、来られた方の色が全く違う結果になりました。オモロい。何事もなるべくしてなるんでしょうね。
今回のメインは、チキンのスモーク。
そして、スモークした玉葱を使ったカレー。

終了後、

スモークしたモッツァレラとサラダと共に、頂いたオーガニックワインでお疲れ様。

次は蛍の季節に。
どんなことしよーかなー。
