live photos and maybe some blogging

ok sports fans, here are some pics from yesterday's Open Apartment event in Yokohama. we had about 20 visitors come through and the last one left at 11pm. thanks to Natsuko Kido for amazing takoyaki using a family heirloom cast iron plate that her parents had custom made in osaka. thanks to Hitome Hasegawa for delicious hainan chicken rice and nikujaga which we devoured.

more today. already Yamane arrived with a bag of t-shirts that he and Yuka made of his drawings. he's managed to sell both t-shirts and a copy of the live publication. today's "chaos" is off to a pretty good start.


live blogging, kind of, of our open apartment event. and flickr photos to be uploaded soon. another installment of LIVE OPEN APARTMENT starts today at 14:00 Japan Standard Time.

see you then.

so wang wei and i have some work up at ZAIM in yokohama for the ZAIM FESTA.
[so... is that a word in any language, 'festa'? infesta?]

and it is after the fact, but we did a talk on feb 28th. we talked about our work, Pauline flew over from beijing to talk about arrow factory. a small but lively group showed up and we had a lively but small conversation. it seems a good time was had by all.

i can't really remember what we've been doing in the last few days. i guess we've been recovering, cleaning up, fixing things, and planning for the next project. i've started a garden on the balcony. originally this was going to be some kind of organic vegetable garden, but since my fascination with the beautiful veggies in the supermarket, i'm thinking now to actually buy and replant the supermarket veggies and see if they can keep growing on the rooftop garden. somehow it seems more appropriate for this environment. still thinking the details through, but here is a photo of where we're at with this thing:
