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.

反復横跳び

こないだ深夜に偶然変えたチャンネルで高城剛のインタビュー。
500年先まで変わらないものと、最先端のもの、両方大事、みたいなことを言ってた。
田舎に引っ込むってのは18、19世紀的で、21世紀は田舎と都会を反復横跳びのように行ったり来たりするのがいい、みたいなことも。
養老孟司も同じこと言うてる。お釈迦さんもやけど。


やっぱ東京タワーはキレイ。
首都高からとか最高、よね。近々攻めてみよ。
