I will show my Oshibe at Tent Digital at Tent London!


I won a free space at Tent digital in Tent London by a competition.
And, today I was confirmed to be shown there! That's great news.

Tent London is 23-26th September At Truman Brewery, London. (It is at Brick lane.)
I will show my Oshibe there. I haven't shown it in London, so I am so glad to get such a great opportunity to show! Everyone around me said Tent is good exhibition space, so I'm quite excited now. I should think about the space plan etc. now.

This is a link to Tent London.
I hope see you there-

Imperial war museum Duxford

I went to Imperial war museum Duxford to see the battle of britain air show.
I saw a lot of WW air planes and red arrows, these are quite interesting.
I quite liked old air plane graphics. It was a good experience I could go into some airplane's inside. It is quite amazing how our technology is changed in 50 or 70 years... I saw a lot of old GPS system there, these are quite simple, but I guess skilled people can operate these media, but now everyone has GPS our phone,,,

I put more photos on my flickr

New book iBum is on is out!!!

My iBum is on a book now!
A book called "Never use pop up windows" by Anneloes van Gaalan
It is from Dutch art and design publisher, BIS publishers. (They are making cool books! Oh! so good-)

You can buy it on amazon.

It is my second time I am on a published book, but I couldn't receive a book iBum was on before. So I am pretty happy I could receive a printed book, and I could check they are selling on Amazon.

iBum is on 6 pages! wow! And this book is my favorite kind of small book! Other contents are quite interesting, and nice collection of digital designs. And it is not too expensive, ohhhh, great!

I appreciated Anneloes chosen iBum such a great book.

By the way, I will show my Oshibe at Tent Digital 23-26th Sep at Bricklane. (I am 80% sure.)
Looks like I won a free seat to show my work! wow! I will let you know once I found more detail.


Frankchickens gig at Stewart lee's live at Edinburgh Festival

We took a photo with Franz Ferdinand's vocal, Alex.

I'm helping Frankchickens which is a japanese pop performance group organized by Kazuko Hohki. (I made the website for her.)

Frankchickens won fosters comedy award with some good surprising accidents.

It appeared in BBC news, too. (Well, the article itself is quite objective, but it is good to be on. But it is true, we are not comedian;)

So, we were invited as a special secret guest of a British Comedian, Stewart Lee's live at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Surprisingly, there was another guest, too. It was Franz Ferdinand!!! (What? We haven't know till we arrived there.)
Venue- Edinburgh festival theatre

backstage was huge hall!!
Military tattoo guys
Performers were everywhere! If you wanna see everything, it might take 1 year?!
But it is true, there are tons of theatre performances. Amazing vive atmosphere!

at make up room. Proper room, right?
Fab stage! I heard nearly 2000 people can be there?
By accident, I met my friend, Morag there! It was completely by chance. I haven't seen her since I showed my work in ICFF New York. We were showing there together. Also she is living in Glasgow, so Edinburgh is not common place for us, but I met her, wow!!

It was two days short trip, but exciting trip with a lot of fun-- thanks Kazuko, and everyone- congratulations.
