Found a photographer who dedicated his work / life to red light districts. The first one was taken in my loving neighbour red light district around 1950. This area magnetises people including myself.
He’s one of those who can say fuck off to collectors and curators, who never will be their pet.
I spent good 3 hours at his pretty big exhibition admiring his courage to show the very dark side, his intelligence and more than anything, his sense of time.
Her work magnetized me.
One of those experience doesn’t happen often when you are just browsing at a bookshop.
This sinister quality on round baby-like bodies in the simplest manner.
Kind of thing gives you a bit of shiver with pleasure.
I found this last night and have been there today.
This art aquarium is produced by Hidetomo Kimura.
Japanese love aquariums and there are so many of them across the country.
But this one’s special.
He focused on GOLDFISH, which has been always in Japanese culture especially in summer and absolutely married goldfish and art off on the modern virgin road.
Even the way the venue’s used is more than just aquarium.
It’s open till 23:00 with drinks to be served and has DJ to play hypnotic music with laser light.
My gosh! It was super packed tonight!
It’s been 3 weeks since I landed here in Tokyo, however, still haven’t covered SHITAMACHI area where I live although I walk round everyday.
The reason to take so much time is off course the actual scale is huge and many unique shops round but also sooooooooooo many products about everything! It feels like I can drawn in the sea of things.
Now it’s clear that it’ll take more than my life time to cover whole Tokyo. This gives me sense of rush – it’s beyond my capable scale!
Time / season’s moving slowly but surely here – I sweated out life time amount already (realised I rarely go to toilet) that my eczema got out with the sweat, but the night is giving hints of autumn.
Today I put some of my video diaries which I started in London to record my move to Tokyo and to show my determination – whatever it costs I wanted to move.
