“Mono” (things) and “koto” (events) are said to be important concepts that shape our thoughts in Japanese. It is not too much to say that art is also formed with these two words. According to the dictionary, “mono” is “an object that occupies a certain part of space and has a form that can be perceived by the human senses” and “koto” is “a word referring to an object of thought or consciousness, or abstract phenomena, actions or properties”. In Japanese, different characters can be applied, such as 物 (object) or 者 (person) for mono, and 事 (event) or 言 (word) for koto, associating various definitions that lead to a deep forest of contemplation.
