Time again for more space

From Elements of Japanese Design by Boyé Lafayette De Mente on “MA Mixing Space and Time”

Ma means space as well as time and refers to the space of time between events. It is space that is sensually as well as intellectually perceived. In the Japanese concept of things, ma gets your attention and directs your mind or thoughts along specific paths that lead to some kind of conclusion or some pleasant event. In art circles, ma also refers to the aesthetic and creative sense of the artist — in the artist knowing how structure the flow of time.

It is worth spending a while again meditating on the modifications of our perceptions of time.

And so for day 386
