Feature Photo is entitled Control by Nakamura Ryuji. It is one of the works shown at the Takeo Paper Show: Subtle Delicate or Infinitesimal.
This past December while in London, I had the chance to visit this incredible exhibition at Japan House. All the exhibits rested on custom built tables which were masterpieces in themselves. The works were created by living artists, working in paper, across many disciplines: art, animation, architecture, fashion, graphic design and literature.
It was such a feast for the senses – unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture these creations with my camera phone, due to lack of focus (lots of stunned gawking) & skill (sigh … no excuses). Here is a link which might give you a taste of some of these wonderful creations.
In thinking of Circles, I think of several close friends who have lost loved ones just this year. Younger Daughter has become quite philosophical about the many wakes we’ve attended, and she comforts us all by reminding us that it is all part of the Circle of Life.
