Shadows test


“La sombra, las sombras que enmascaran parte de la realidad, que no enseñan sino que sugieren, es un arte que necesita ser cultivado para convertirse en realidad”

“Lo bello no es una sustancia en sí sino un juego de claroscuros producido por la yuxtaposición de las diferentes sustancias que va formando el juego sutil de las modulaciones de la sombra. Lo mismo que una piedra fosforescente en la oscuridad pierde toda su fascinante sensación de joya preciosa si fuera expuesta a plena luz, la belleza pierde toda su existencia si se suprimen los efectos de la sombra”

El elogio de la sombra
Junichiro Tanizaki

“The shadow, the shadows that mask part of reality, that do not teach but suggest, is an art that needs to be cultivated to become reality”

“The beautiful is not a substance in itself but a play of chiaroscuro produced by the juxtaposition of the different substances that form the subtle play of the modulations of the shadow. Just as a phosphorescent stone in the dark loses all its fascinating sensation of precious jewel if exposed to full light, beauty loses all its existence if the effects of the shadow are suppressed “

In Praise of Shadows
Junichiro Tanizaki
