"Skin and Bones - Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture" Exhibition

At The National Art Center, Tokyo

This exhibition will present recent trends in fashion and architecture. Until fairly recently, the two disciplines were not seen as having many points of contact, but from the 1980s onward, the distance separating them narrowed and they began to exert a significant influence on each other. Notably, in recent years, the use of computer-aided design and other technological developments — in both materials and methods of fabrication — have given exponents of both disciplines greater freedom in creating complex shapes, and have wrought profound changes in the relationship between surface and structure. Fashion designers have come to create intricate, architectural garments using two-dimensional textiles, while architects are generating more complex, curved forms that reveal the influence of fashion design. The exhibition will consist of 230 works by some 40 outstanding fashion designers and architects from 21 countries, including Japan, where leading-edge work is being produced in both disciplines. The exhibition examines parallel practices of the two domains from various viewpoints, including conception, form, structure, and technique.

I have been working with two friends in a very amuzing project- a different musicbook for small kids. We are three in the team, me as an illustrator and designer, catarina a musician and concept developer and Cecilia an actress and writer. We have had an great time working with it. Now we have 100 copies that we will distribute in different ways. Catarina has created great music and Cecilia is really funny as a small froggirl....
