Wei Wu Wei: “For Sile” / Shōmei Tōmatsu

Shōmei Tōmatsu – Untitled (Hateruma-jima, Okinawa), from the series “The Pencil of the Sun”, 1971

I am the sea too, and the stars, the wind and the rain,
I am everything that has form — for form is my seeing of it.
I am every sound — for sound is my hearing of it,
I am all flavours, each perfume, whatever can be touched,
For that which is perceptible is my perceiving of it,
And all sentience is mine.

Shōmei Tōmatsu – Untitled, from the series “Protest Tokyo” 1969

They have no other existence, and neither have I —
for what they are I am, and what I am they are.
What the universe is I am, and what I am the universe is.
And there is no other at all, nor any one whatsover.

— Wei Wu Wei, from “For Sile” in Open Secret
