    Sky above Is Blue (Diptych)

    • This is the print carefully reproduced from the original work “Sky above Is Blue (Diptych)”. 


      When looking at the sky above on a crisp fine day, everybody can enjoy the transparent blue sky in their eyes. But just a minute. How can you tell it’s the blue sky you are seeing right now is the same as the person beside you is enjoying? I’m talking about our visual experience, on this occasion, about colour. 
      Firstly the physiological variables affect our vision. For instance, your visual experience is completely different from the colour-blind person. Normally we have three colour receptors (red, green, blue) but there is a minority group who has four colour receptors. They can see extra colour of longer wavelengths than red spectrum. Furthermore, there is another special group, the people with synesthesia. Our visual experience should be varied. Secondly, the external factors such as light and geographical condition, affect our vision. The colour of an object doesn’t change but you can tell the difference in the dim light at the dawn or under the bright daylight on the afternoon, heat of summer or chilled winter. Thirdly, our mental and emotional states affect our vision. This is far more complicated. In fact, it is utterly individual. Fourthly, our intelligence affects it! 


      In summary, our visual experience is completely unique yet we agree to name it “blue” and enjoy the blue sky on a fine day. It’s a happy mystery. Hence, the title “Sky above Is Blue”.
      本ポスターは、作品『Sky above Is Blue (Diptych)』を忠実に再現したものです。


      要するに、ボクたちの視覚体験というのは全く個別のものと言っていいはずなのですが、それを「青色」と呼ぶことに皆で同意し、かくして晴れた日の青空に心弾ませるというわけなのです。それは神秘に包まれた幸福と言っていい。こうして、作品『Sky above Is Blue』が生まれた次第なのです。
