Sawatdee Spirit - an art work by T Newfields
Daiki: Can you translate this artwork for me?
Chariya: (shaking his head) No, but I can interpret it.
Daiki: Huh?
Chariya: Shall I clarify the difference between translation and interpretation?
Daiki: (imitating Chariya's previous head shake) Nah. Generally speaking, ignorance is more comfortable than knowledge.
Chariya: (clearing his throat) Then let me simply ask this question: do you notice how the various images blend like the petals of a flower?
Daiki: Ahh, I guess so. . .
Chariya: That is sawatdee spirit.
