CONCEPT OF 'MA'

'You are Here' is my interpretation of Ma, one of the most fascinating concepts of Japanese culture. Ma (pronounced "maah") defines the pure, and indeed essential, void between all "things. This term can be roughly translated as "gap", "space", "pause" and is the emptiness full of possibilities, like a promise yet to be fulfilled.
