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.

月曜大工

Toco施工開始。

なんか建物の横の巨大な土管みたいなのに、

布袋草と金魚。
なんかいただきな感じ。

3間とキッチンがあるのやけど、キッチン以外はそれぞれ、4.5畳は杉の荒板を乱張りしてオイルステイン、8畳は床揚げしてコンパネアクリル白塗装、6畳は畳に。

隙間には発砲スチロールで断熱。
イデーの時に施工部隊をやってた遠矢クンが工具持参で手伝いに来てくれて、というか、ほぼ遠矢クンがやってくれたのやけど、そんな彼は普段、皮で鞄とか小物を作ってるらしく、しかもかわいくて、なので、『Toco』で取り扱わせてもらうことにしました。乞うご期待。

また追々。
