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.

たった今

東の空に流れ星。

カルムのおやすみ前のトイレ散歩に出たら、やたら月が明るくて、空ばっかり見上げてたら、あ!って感じ。
願い事なんて、無理。

20歳の時、神戸から船で上海に行ったんやけど、その船上からの星空は、今までで一番。天の川ってホンマに天の川って感じで、空に全体に拡がる星の数の多さにただただびっくりした。
その時たまたまなんとか流星群とぶつかってたのか、それともそれだけ星がキレイに見えるからそうだったのか、いずれにせよ一晩のうちにいくつ流れ星を見たかわからんくらい、デッキに寝そべりつつ見た。
死ぬまでにもう一度味わいたいことの1つ。
