WHITE

Japanese | English | German | Korean version

White is a work of Kenya Hara’s in which he tries to reassess white not as a color but as the foundation of Japanese sensibilities. This is a test, from the standpoint of design, of the study that runs through the aesthetics of books like novelist Junichiro Tanizaki’s In Praise of Shadows, philosopher Shuzo Kuki’s The Structure of Iki, art thinker Tenshin Okakura’s Book of Tea and agriculturalist Inazo Mitobe’s Bushido: The Soul of Japan.
