Added/borrowed value

Post  Truong on Wed Jul 13, 2011 10:43 am

My rocks so far are just below par.

But then some of them are actually ore!

I hope the borrowed value make up for it. rabbit

Hi Truong,
This one gives me an image of a fairy mountain top.

Hi Truong... Appreciating a stone is arguably a humbling experience. That approach engages me, and it has meaning for you. Sunip has expressed it, as well, in various posts while also encouraging a second look or fresh consideration. The stone can't change, but our impression can change & open.

Can you explain why you see some stones as "just below par?" Since you refer to ore, I imagine you are noting the material rather than the contour as a potential block to appreciation.

You note hopefully that "the borrowed value (can/might/et al.) make up for it." I understand some added/borrowed values for some stone traditions and miss recognizing many. What added/borrowed values do you imagine for these particular stones. Are there borrowed values applicable for every stone? Do borrowed values arise from the stone, from the viewer or from an experience?

Educator John Dewey noted (please excuse my paraphrasing, which is not exact):
A work of art takes place when a human cooperates with an object so that the outcome is an experience. Art works not by its success as a project/object or mimesis/representation but in its ability to contribute to an experience.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for a lot of scholarly stuffs.

By "borrowed value" I mean those sparkling things.

Hi Truong.
We only see a detail of the fairy snow mountain but in a way you could speak of a Sekkei Ishi stone.
Interested to hear what others might feel about this one.
regards, Sunip Wink
