Black No.5：Juan Fielitz／Artist

Silence as absence of sound equals darkness as absence of light.
Goethe theorized on the subject by creating the famous musical chromatic scale in “Theory of Colors” (Zur Farbenlehre).
In the history of art there are many who have developed their sensibility from that color: Kasimir Malevitch, Joseph Beuys, Mark Rothko and continuing with the analogy black = silence, the controversial musical piece 4’33 ” by John Cage where the silence is prolonged for four minutes and thirty-three seconds.
