In Interviews by TABuzz 2009-06-16

I WANT TO VISIT…

Ryoji Ikeda “+/-[the infinite between 0 and 1]” at MOT
I’ve never seen his exhibition before and MOT also had a make-over.

Mustone “Specter” at Nanzuka Underground
I want to see how Mustone has developed, as well as Nanzuka Underground’s new gallery.

QP “OYKOTOKYOYKOT” at The Last Gallery
Everyone should have seen QP’s work on the train, and should go check out what he’s up to now.

Ryota Kuwakubo “Smile Transistor” at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation
Ryota Kuwakubo is another artist I really like. I always look forward to seeing what he’s doing.

I WENT TO…

“OFFF 2009” (Lisbon, Portugal)
A design conference held in Lisbon, great speakers, great weather.

“ICC Open Space 2009” at NTT ICC Inter Communication Center
One of CBCNET’s staff is exhibiting near the entrance!

I AM USING…

Emobile
Now the internet is everywhere.

PS3
I’m not a big game guy but “Little Big Planet” and “Killzone” surprised me.

I AM OBSERVING…

Exonemo Antibot T-Shirts
At last, EXONEMO’s customized t-shirts website!
For the coming summer I’m gonna make a t-shirt the computer can’t cope with!
Online store

MY HOT TIPS TO WATCH ARE…

Nao Tokui [artist website]

Daito Manabe [artist website]

These people always make you look forward to what they’re going to make!

But there are so many so check out CBCnet!

MY LAST COMMENT IS…
