Design Festa May 2011 in Conclusion
This spring Design Festa Vol. 33 held at the Big Site in Odaiba was again a blast as usual, filled with many inspiring amateur and professional artists exhibiting their artworks and creations to the delight of a staggering crowd of enthusiasts and fellow conspirators.
The gala event filled with attitude-defying japonistas, fashionistas and other sartorial geniuses and creative monsters combined in a jampacked big site was equally blessed with noise and eye-stealing performances on the main stage involving some performing artists.
Yours truly, the Japonistas roamed the site for some nice fellows to share with you guys and to mention a few, here are the folks who made it on our list.
Digital psychographic Cybernetic Manipulator – Japonegraphica, a visual and graphic artist, whose love with the hued themes of Japanese patterns and kamon are transported in a futuristic theme of techno pop overlays of Japonisme. His soul is also filled with beat of techno and electronic expressions resulting in a very Japanese neo-type fusion of digital art X traditional Japan.
Doll Creator: Juri
Inspite of being a university student, this young lass’ dabbling with the world of Japanese doll making is surely going to show signs of becoming a big name in the near future. Just visit her gallery to see the step-by-step intricate details she performs when making her lovely and special creations.
Neo Geisha Artist: Caoru
Caoru is a painter/artist dressed up in a motif of a ravishly contemporary Neo Geisha. Her doll installation works in oversized and hug frames were eye-catchy and truly a great style to surely catch the attention of the japonisme-loving foreigner.
New World Transparent Specimens: Iori Tomita
Borrowing from his website:
Transparent specimens? They are far from what you might imagine from the word “specimens.” Although being organisms, they appear as if they were beautifully sculpted from minerals.
Originally, the method of making transparent specimens enzymatically turning the protein transparent, dyeing the bones magenta and dyeing the cartilages blue ? was established for scientific purposes to study the skeletal system. Taking this a step further to refine the form and coloration of the specimens requires time and experience.
I create transparent specimens as pieces of work that help people feel closer to the wonders of life.
People may look at my specimens as an academic material, a piece of art, or even an entrance to philosophy. There is no limitation to how you interpret their meaning.
I hope you will find my work as a “lens” to project a new image, a new world that you’ve never seen before.
Please enjoy the beautiful and wondrous world of “New World Transparent Specimens.

We are now trying hard to collaborate something so that we could join and participate in the next Autumn’s event again for the Vol. 34 of the Design Festa.
See you folks then!
