“Don’t Give Up Japan”, a series of beautiful paintings by Tokyo-based illustrator Hiroyuki Izutsu, created after the horrible disaster there. See more of the series below.
Gou Miyagi’s part in Heroin’s “Video Nasty” is the best video part I’ve seen in years. Gou (pronounced “Go”) wanted to shoot it all in his hometown, Okinawa, Japan, and do his entire part without any ollies. There were parts of this where I actually laughed out loud, it’s so creative.
I posted Gou Miyagi’s part in “Overground Broadcasting” back in 2008, so you can see he’s been on a different wavelength for years.
Watch his fantastic video part below!
“1972”, photos of the Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo, by Noritaka Minami. The building was designed by Kisho Kurokawa with interchangeable capsules so that the structure could be continually updated. But that was not the case, none of the “futuristic” units were ever replaced, and the building slowly deteriorated. Minami shot this series in 2011 as plans were announced to demolish the building.
