Yayoi Kusama, Japan’s Most Celebrated Contemporary Artist, Illustrates Alice in Wonderland
Since childhood, Kusama has had a rare condition that makes her see colorful spots on everything she looks at. Her vision, both literally and creatively, is thus naturally surreal, almost hallucinogenic. Her vibrant artwork, sewn together in a magnificent fabric-bound hardcover tome, becomes an exquisite embodiment of Carroll’s story and his fascination with the extraordinary way in which children see and explore the ordinary world.

Artist Yusuke Ito plays with the way our eyes define objects by balancing shadow and light and guiding the viewer to question what exists and what doesn’t. Our eyes are supported by light and shadow to define an object, but when that object is instead, taken over by light and shadow, it suddenly becomes less important. Ito uses this confusion in his photography and installations to force the viewer to question how they see things. The artist was born in Tokyo Japan and moved to the states in 2006 to earn his B.F.A from the University of Texas at Austin.

The Orime mouse by Nendo
Japanese design firm Nendo has recently released their Orime Computer Mouse for Elecom. The wireless laser mouse is built entirely from flat surfaces, rather than the traditional curves. Formed as though by folding a piece of paper, the orime (which means fold), mouse fits comfortably into the hand, but also looks like low-resolution CG data sprung out from the screen, for a design that seems neither digital nor analog, but possibly both or somewhere in between!

Planetary Chocolates Are Out of This World

L’éclat, the chocolate boutique of the Righa Royal Hotel Japan, has created beautiful planetary chocolates that look too pretty to resist. The chocolates are edible replicas of the planets Mercury (coconut mango), Venus (cream lemon), Earth (cacao), Mars (orange praline), Jupiter (vanilla), Saturn (rum raisin), Uranus (milk tea) and Neptune (cappuccino).
The chocolates are sold individually for 400 yen, but if you order the set for 3,800 yen, L’éclat will include the Sun which is made of criollo chocolate and pineapple. Their marble-like appearance and numerous flavors would make any chocolate lover go absolutely insane!
