Nancy, Fantastic! I would love to see what you come up with re.
teaching materials on Japanese art and culture. Henry opens up one
door I am eager to enter as well -- the rusty and dry, found object
art that certainly makes up a Western genre and how do the philosophies
compare? My guess is that, having originated in the tea ceremony, the
Japanese approach has a slightly different flavor than what more likely
originated in Western coffee houses -- that they converge or appear
to is intriguing --is the common element caffeine? (just kidding, I
think) My own personal art works with some of these elements, taking
photos of ordinary things, from compost to sidewalk cracks and putting
them together in collage to form beautiful patterns. Students seem
to "get it" and take off on their own trips to find beauty in the
ordinary.
