Prelude to the Operating Systems of the Future City.  A great little exhibition at Tokyo Wonder Site in Iidabashi.  Kind of organising things which prey on our minds and expressing it in a visual way.

Top marks go to the thoroughly interesting book called Heteropolis by AdaptiveActions (NOT Charles Jencks – another book entirely).  I hope to get a copy sometime very soon.

Heteropolis

Walked into this by mistake!

It’s that time of year again.  The long, long walk from Shimo Akatsuka station to Itabashi Art Museum.  I KNEW I’d forgotten somewhere to visit when I saw the botanical garden a few days ago.  Could have killed 2 birds with one stone.  Anyway, this year, I feel, was heaps better than last year … ie a lot less wishy washy.  Or rather it made concrete in drawing style a lot more of my screenplay ideas.

A LOT of fun!  Zillions of kids and parents.

and life goes on … very interesting and very expensive exhibition, considering it was 2 rooms and 1500 yen!  Wolves are stuffed (not very sympathetically) and caught in amazing poses.  I just wondered how they managed to get the wolves in that particular position via rigor mortis.  It is like a photo captured in real life 3D.  About 4 assistants hanging around so absolutely no chance of a sneaky photo and I was too ashamed to do my dumbass routine.  Though I did ‘manage’ to brush into one of the wolves (on purpose) to feel what the fur was like.  Not nice – very brittle and hard.  The Japanese are very fierce if you try to interact with art exhibits.

The other two photos are made with gunpowder – Cai Guo Qiang wanted to use one of the 4 great Chinese inventions – gunpowder, papermaking, printing, compass.  Oh – what would we do without the Chinese today!!!  Not a lot …
