Daikon wig, meatloaf face and eggplant sweater.  It’s a instant Andy Warhol! Both shredded vegetable & meatloaf are my favorite materials to work with these days. When I made this troll-looking unnamed face, I wanted to make silver wig for this artist portrait.

Other artist portraits here and here.

Inspired by the 1953 film ‘Le Ballon Rouge,’ the Balloon Bench was created by h220430.

It looks like a bench being floated away by balloons! Beautiful work.

Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen

I’m sure a lot of people agree that old fashioned or new and high-tech, kitchen tools are fun to look at and use.  I constantly have a long list of kitchen tools to adopt next. This week, I’m in love with this orange-colored slicer I bought a year ago, Swissmar V-7000 Borner VPower V-Slicer Mandoline. To be honest, I was a bit scared of using “shredding” blade before, but shredding vegetable is addictive! I’m experimenting some new shapes & flavors with it, and it’s been pretty exciting.

My favorite tool at the kitchen exhibition at MoMA was this rolling cookie cutter from 50’s. Now I am in search of this type of cutters, even i don’t make that many cookies. If you’ve seen something similar, let me know.


ニューヨーク近代美術館 (MoMA) で開催されている”Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen”という展示はキッチンの進化やその周りの文化、道具、関連のあるアートなどを詰め込んだ企画です。隣にあるカフェテリアでは、食べ物を使ったパフォーマンスなどが並行して行われているようです。



This was the first exhibition I saw this year.

The night of January 1st was very warm, and Madison Square Park was quiet and bright from the snow on ground. Entering the park from the southern entrance, the installation didn’t make much sense to us. We then walked around and found the image while viewing from the east side of the park. It was a beautiful sight.
