  • SHHS Freshman Shares Art in Response to Racial Violence

    SHHS Freshman, Nina Lyppens, shares art she created using an Eastern technique called Notan. Nōtan (濃淡) is a Japanese word, meaning dark-light, there is no English language equivalent. It embodies an ancient Eastern concept, in which all things exist as inseparable and in perfect harmony. An idea similar to an ecosystem. If one component is removed the whole systems will be effected. Within black and white opposites, there is no conflict, the opposites ‘complement,’ each other. Neither seeks to negate or dominate over the other, they only to relate together in perfect balance because the are equal. The white shape has the same equal weight as the black and visa versa. In the video, Nina explains her artwork in this video and shares, "I hope that you will be able to share this Art to represent how we are all equally beautiful no matter how different we look and how we all need one another."
