Exploring the Japanese Aesthetic

Diving into the Japanese aesthetic has brought a lot of fun to the studios the last few weeks.  We have been exploring the three different facets to the aesthetic: mono no aware, yugen, and wabi sabi.  The journey has taken us into some light and shadow play, charcoal drawings, and a little bit of film.  Because much of the aesthetic comments on the idea of impermanence, the process has consequently been quite meditative.  There is a deepened sense of concentration that has arisen in the studio from really delving into the understanding of this concept of impermanence and imperfection.  In the process of perfecting our craft, we are somehow also learning the importance and beauty of imperfection.  Below is a snippet from our rehearsal the other day, playing with this idea of imperfection through charcoal drawing and film.

Have you encountered such a comment? Maybe they mean what they said. You need a doctor though it may sound irritating but consider it anyway.Men have so much pride that they get furious to hear a comment from anyone.[www.aacsatlanta.com] please visitatlanta anger management

Some artists make finding the right drug and alcohol rehab center the main reason why they don't seek treatment. They think that it will be too difficult to get into one that they can afford, that will be covered by their health insurance or that will allow them to see their family during treatment. But finding the right drug and alcohol rehab center should never be used as an excuse for not seeking treatment.[www.aacsatlanta.com] take a look,

Put something silly in the world
That ain't been there before.”

That could be interesting. Japan differs a lot from all the Western countries and this could be really interesting to know more about the culture.
