As I have explained in my previous post, More, of less - Introducing SBTRCT, the genesis of SBTRCT was not only the collision of a number of trends, but also a realisation that what was now important to me in my life, had changed.
Talking this through with a former boss back in 2019, he likened my approach and the way I viewed my new life ambitions to something called Wabi Sabi. I hadn’t heard of Wabi Sabi before but he explained it was a philosophy that helps guide the way many Japanese people live their lives. He went on to recommend a book on the subject by Beth Kempton - Wabi Sabi - Japanese Wisdom For A Perfectly Imperfect Life.

I’m not normally a big reader but I read this book in what felt like one inhalation. Every sentence perfectly captured how I’d been feeling about my life and why I was creating SBTRCT.
