Mayumi #3

It is said the history of maps is actually older than that of literature. Even in prehistory, man had to make graphic representations in order to understand where he was and how far he had to go.  If the territory depicted in the diagram can be tread upon by human feet, it belongs to history. If it cannot be so tread upon, if it is an imaginary garden room, or the wilderness of human relationships or the warm intimacy of the human body, then it belongs to the realm of drama. Just as a map may be read in many ways and give rise to many chance encounters, so too the text is a guiding plan that enables us to move back and fourth between “interior” and “exterior” geography.

SHUJI TERAYAMA, 1975

Kato,who I have lost contact with also, had encouraged me to create and correspond with Mayumi. This picture was taken new years eve 1979 in front of Pearl Paint and walking in Chinatown, NYC.

The cover shows a print of Miyamoto Musashi practicing fencing with two sticks. From a series of prints entitled Fidelity in Revenge, by the Japanese artist Kuniyoshi, c. 1848.

Highly esteemed book in Japan that is praticed in life. (O3 collection)
