Project — The Look
...As trends typically come and go, only to return again, the fast wheel of fashion sometimes falls into alignment with the slow motion of architecture. This peculiar synchrony between "fashion time" and "architecture time" is both unsettling and liberating. The Look is a narrative in eighteen scenes about youth, aging, timelessness, and identity. It is set in an ambiguous time. Dispersed throughout are ten accessories that comprise the 2013 capsule collection. These selections from runway...and ready-to-wear collections are "assisted" classics. They are so highly mannered with today's sensibilities that they live in a state of past-present. One of architecture's modernist icons, Philip Johnson's Glass House of 1949... is a key protaganist.

Tape Recorder Art by Ei Wada
by Ginisty Gauthier on March 24, 2014Open Reel Ensemble, from the stage of TEDxTokyo to last year’s Issey Miyake catwalk, creating unique sounds from analog sources.
The artist recreated the analog magic for the visitors of last month’s Media Arts Festival in his work Toki Ori Ori Nasu. With their wheels slowly turning, 4 old-fashioned recorders poured their tapes into narrow glass containers, creating ever-changing twisted shapes. Once the tapes came to an end, the spectators were in for a surprising musical treat:
Among the elaborate high-tech installations of the festival, this surprisingly simple tribute to analog media resonated well with the audience. The tape patterns mesmerized those who came near the work, and crowds rushed to the recorders as soon as the tapes rewinded. We can thank Ai Wada for showing us that after decades of use – and years of abandon – old media still has surprises in store for us.
