Jean Snow and TDW

Despite my cold and the surge of work, I’m still ready and rarin’ to go for this week’s Tokyo Design Week festivities, and I wanted to post something to update you on my activities during the week.

First, as you all know, we have the “Creative GBG” event happening at Cafe Pause in Ikebukuro, again in collaboration with Swedish Style. It starts tomorrow (October 29), runs until November 8, and I’d really suggest coming to the special edition PauseTalk on November 5 (from 20:00), which unlike regular editions, is open to one and all (not just participants). Expect more details on the various installations and participating creators to be posted here throughout the week.

Another event which I’m very excited to be a part of is a special live presentation of Radio OK Fred at the Celine Omotesando store, part of Item Idem’s installation for DesignTide. We (me, Yoshi, Ay2, and Egaitsu Hiroshi) will be doing two shows, on October 31 (Halloween special with Combo Piano, Yayako Uchida, and Umitaro Abe) and November 2 (Special Creativity Now! with David W. Marx, Antonin Gaultier aka Digiki, Marie from Colette, and PMKFA). The “shows” will happen from 18:00 to 20:00, with nice music, great talk, lots of unexpected happenings, and free drinks!

Also, as in past years, I’ll be covering the various design events, and taking lots of photos for MoCo Loco, so check there later this week for that coverage (and if you missed it, here’s my TDW preview from THE JAPAN TIMES). I also plan on posting a few TDW-related posts at Neojaponisme throughout the week.
