Pause

FullSizeRender 17

“Ma () is a Japanese word which can be roughly translated as …’space’ [or] ‘pause’ … In Japanese, ma, the word for space, suggests interval. It is best described as a consciousness of place, … the simultaneous awareness of form and non-form…

Ma is not something that is created by compositional elements; it is the thing that takes place in the imagination of the human who experiences these elements.”

-in the words of Wikipedia
