    “In the Japanese custom of ceramics appreciation, there is a technique of kintsugi, where a broken pottery is repaired using laquer mixed with powdered gold; there is an aesthetic of admiring imperfections. That is, in Japan breakable connotes transience and empathy with the ephemeral; there is a tendency to favourably accept it as such.”


    - Takashi Murakami

     

     

    I think about brokenness. Brokenness of spirit — the cracks of a past aggressor upon a body and a soul, the cracks of time passing upon a fragile thing.

     

    I think of broken people, how if we let one other close we might cause pain, we might feel pain.

     

    I think of how we really just need safety.

     

    I think of ways I can be safely broken, of ways I can create safety for broken people.

     

    I think of ways I can bring these thoughts to our collective visual space.
