Mieko Sai

The other night when I was out for dinner with an old friend who was in town for a visit (at a stylish Italian restaurant in Odaiba called Fragile), I met graphic/web designer Mieko Sai, whose site you can view here (I dig the interactive cursor animation). She was telling me about a NY-based art magazine she works on called COOL, with the tagline “Creator’s Infinite Links” — intriguingly, the Japanese content on the site is quite extensive, but there’s almost nothing in English. She was saying that the magazine is hard to find, and that she sells copies herself. She showed interest in attending next month’s edition of PauseTalk, so it might be a good opportunity to get her to bring along some copies.

UpdateMieko has sent me a list of places where you can pick up COOL in Tokyo.
