“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.

This video instantly reminded me of this video, (maybe a bit too much) but it’s a pretty basic idea – mirror effect on a train ride through Japan. In any case it’s really enjoyable to look at. Watch “Hyper Drive” below!

Erosie

erosie pattern formation
In my opinion, a good project allows people of all skill levels to participate and produces something worth looking at. Sometimes it’s tricky to do both. Erosie’s recent murals in Osaka Japan do both beautifully. By using paper to mask certain areas, he was able to have kids contribute in a way that was structured but also completely unstructured. I love this idea, take a look below!

SAIGO NO SHUDAN
Ayumu Arisaka, Mai Oita, and Ren Kohata are known as Saigo No Shudan. Together they are making some of the most unconventional animations I’ve seen. They combine drawings, paintings, cut-outs, toys, you name it. Their work is unpredictable, and totally refreshing. Enjoy several of their videos below!
