Finding Beauty in Imperfection
Author: Oliver Luke Delorie
Find beauty and harmony in the unfinished, fleeting, modest, and simple things in life. Learn how to let go of judgment and see things differently. Embrace the ancient Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi and appreciate the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. The essence of this slippery, intangible concept can only be found by embracing inevitable discord, disarray, and disfunction in all we see, hear, think, feel, do and say. Seemingly complex, yet delightfully simple, wabi sabi is the spirit of change; the passing of time; the acknowledgement, appreciation and acceptance of the transient and temporary nature of all things in the cycle of life.
The Japanese Art of Impermanence
Author: Andrew Juniper
Publisher: Tuttle Publishing
Developed out of the aesthetic philosophy of cha-no-yu (the tea ceremony) in fifteenth-century Japan, wabi sabi is an aesthetic that finds beauty in things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. Taken from the Japanese words wabi, which translates to less is more, and sabi, which means attentive melancholy, wabi sabi refers to an awareness of the transient nature of earthly things and a corresponding pleasure in the things that bear the mark of this impermanence. As much a state of mind—an awareness of the things around us and an acceptance of our surroundings—as it is a design style, wabi sabi begs us to appreciate the simple beauty in life—a chipped vase, a quiet rainy day, the impermanence of all things. Presenting itself as an alternative to today's fast-paced, mass-produced, neon-lighted world, wabi sabi reminds us to slow down and take comfort in the simple, natural beauty around us. In addition to presenting the philosophy of wabi-sabi, this book includes how-to design advice—so that a transformation of body, mind, and home can emerge. Chapters include: History: The Development of Wabi Sabi Culture: Wabi Sabi and the Japanese Character Art: Defining Aesthetics Design: Creating Expressions with Wabi Sabi Materials Spirit: The Universal Spirit of Wabi Sabi
