Gardens As Art: Aesthetic Journeys around the World,Shibusa Aesthetics: Spontaneity in Japanese Gardens


Event details

The final lecture by David Young. is called Shibusa Aesthetics: Spontaneity in Japanese Gardens. The goal of a traditional Japanese garden is to re-create nature on a small scale and in an artistic way that improves upon nature. Keeping in mind that the word “art” comes from the same word as “artificial,” how can something be natural and artificial at the same time? This interesting challenge was met in Japan with the concept of shibusa, which can be translated as “restrained spontaneity” or “spontaneity of effect.”
