Transparent Specimens

 Amazing world !....

"New World Transparent Specimens by Iori Tomita"

This is my first time to see this world.
Colored skeletons are vital and beautiful.
It looks like they are alive..

It remembers me the mystery of lives.

 Originally,immersion in the special chemical was a technique of anatomical research which " made the mustles transparent, and dyed the cartlage blue and the bones red."

                                                                                                            Frog skeleton dance!! 

My favorite..cute!!

Barbie Exihibition

Barbie Exihibition is opened at Ginza, Tokyo.

Barbies  by Japanese collector Yasuhiro Sekiguchi
is showed there.

I could know the history and story of Barbie.

 The amazing point is that Barbies were made in Japan at the beginning of this business.
All parts of Barbie such as bodies, clothes,boots and so on were made in Japan...

Japanese supported the symbol of American culture!!
After that ,Japan original design were launched..

← Kimono Barbie I loved best.

"Hurisode Kimono" with long sleeves is cute!!

Huri means swing. Sode means sleeves.

So Hurisode means swinging sleeves..

What is inspiration?

 In YOGA, human body has 7 energy centers,
which call "chakras".

 And Yin and Yan is the rule of universe.
I think it is a kind of energy theory of cosmos.
 Where deos inspiration come from?
In my experience, When I go for a walk, try meditation or in the bathroom,
inspiration comes to me.
No matter where I am, the important thing is mind-set....relax.

When my mind is relax, I can recieve inspiration.
 To create art, inspiration is neccessary.
And to catch better inspiration, "RELAX" is neccessary.

Relax feeling!!

Moon Light Blue

  "月光浴 gekkouyoku" by Kenji Ishikawa is my favorite book.
The world taken under the moon light is very fantastic and mysterious.
(not used artificial lights but only moon light)
His photos show another facet of lives.
Under the sun light, lives shows powerfulness and energy,
but they are very gentle,soft and graceful under the moon.
Feeling tranquility further.
Tranquility- one of our most important need....for our mind.

"Dolphins " by Tsuneo Nakamura is my favorite photo book.
I love dolphins' eyes and face. And it looks like they enjoy freedom

fully, feeling swimming in the ocean is very confortable.

I feel peace, love, pleasure.... from them.

Especially, "LOVE" is one of many nature powers.
Lovely dolphins....

I am most interested in "EYES" in body parts.

The function of eyes is to see.

But true eyes power is to speak.

What are they speaking?

A will, passion, life power....

Eyes speak them clearly rather than speaking by mouth.

We can feel eyes power from not only eyes of human but also those of animals.

Eyes power is mysterious and great..

Grand Canyon

When I was seaching birthday present for my friend,

found this book.


taken in national park in Arizona.

Because landscape in which canyon is spreading is not in Japan,

I was very impressed with this bigness and beauty of nature.

The form of  land is very misterious.

....very fresh feeling.

I had respect for nature...

Long time I had been busy for my business,
but I could take off yesterday.

There is Setagaya Literary museum in Tokyo.
I was not planning to go there at first,
eventually paid a visit to there.

not seeing exibition, I went straight to museum shop.

The book I came across there is "Paris-Eugene Atget"published by Taschen.
It is the photo book by collecting photos taken by Eugene in 1900's.

This book may be famous in Europe or U.S.
but I didn't know that.

Very beautiful and nostalgic photographs...
Park,streets, newspaper shop ,baker's shop...

I was very fascinated...
And I thought history and tradition of human is very valuable and wonderful.

Tomio Koyama gallery

At Kiyozumi-Sirakawa station
There are two kinds of gallery, commercial gallery and rental space gallery in Japan.

Tomio Koyama Gallery(TKG) is the most famous Japanese commercial gallery.

I went there to learn management of gallery.

TKG is located at Kiyozumi-Sirakawa in Tokyo.

Kiyozumi-Sirakawa is known to Kiyozumi Park

but typical Japanese town.

There is no gallery except for TKG around there.

TKG is  on 5-6F in transfer company building.

Next to its building is taxi company.

Aoyama and Ropponngi  are artistic fashionable area in Tokyo,

but Kiyozumi-Sirakawa isn't.

I was amazing ...

The important thing is not location but management.

I thought....
