Wabi Sabi is a Japanese school of aesthetics inspired by Taoist and Buddhist philosophies that embraces the timeworn, the weathered, and the accidental. Asymmetry, irregularity, economy, and intimacy are key aspects; beauty waits to be discovered in the unpredictable and evolving nature of materials and form.

These ideas stand in contrast to the seamless perfection of design and built-in obsolescence that characterize the current tech-centric era. Wabi Sabi celebrates historicity by highlighting the cracks and crevices left by use. It is temporal, reflecting mortality and humanity by focusing upon the fragility and mutability of life. Accidental fissures pierce the veneer of the seemingly finished and complete. Layers of decay and erosion create visual maps of experience.

A HUGE THANKS to everyone who stopped by YBCA on Thursday Sept. 19th and checked out our latest Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) installation! It was an amazing evening and an enormous success that allowed many people to participate and share their voice. Our live tweet piece, which invited people to say “I (emoticon) my community because…” drew in tweets from as far away as Mexico City and Argentina.
A HUGE THANKS also to Katya Min and the YBCA staff for hosting us, Art Hazelwood for creating such an amazing poster image, Jonathan Grover for creating such an innovative tweet piece, and Jessica Watson for helping us promote the project!
