We created the Anniversaire Omotesando window display titled Colorful Party, inspired by the connection between individual and society.
“COLORFUL PARTY” | One particular bird has become a part of our lives. What normally would have been a member of a flock of birds in nature was born into our human society and now interacts with us as an individual. As we showered her with affection, we started to take an interest in the ecological phenomenon of flocking. If you think about it, we people come from a history of living in groups, with each person bringing their own color, but in modern society we have become able to live independently. Our connections are weakening as a result. As with our bodies, we are made up of a great number of cells, and this may be proof that we cannot be held up by just a single cell.

Since forming in 2008, balloon artist DAISY BALLOON has continued to create balloon works based the themes of perception and quality which has now published in their second art book release.
The book is a collection of 16 works created between April 2012 through November 2013. The first creation focuses on the balloon as the principal material. The second piece is an ambitious creation that incorporates non-balloon materials. The experimental fusion of alternative materials proves to be a success in exposing the different facets of balloons. We hope that you will someday be able to experience their new creations up close. Daikanyama Tsutaya Books will have an exhibition along with the pre-release of photo book vol. 2.

Existence | Digital has come to change the concept of existence in a large way. Photos, film, the dots on a map which we can information-based services, and lightwaves are two dimensional, and humans have evolved these to exist as three dimensional matter. We incorporate a fourth dimension to give rise to an even newer existence. That dimension we call time, through which lengthy histories rise and become societal symbols. We travel between the second and third dimensions, hoping to be filtered through time. To exist, in terms of time as a dimension, is to achieve an everlasting honeymoon with memory.

Fiction | What kind of effect has fiction had on humankind? Magic, deception, fabrication, shallow trickery. It seems there is one side of fiction that contradicts the transparency that modern society values. However, when you dive in and experience fiction in the form of a story, you return with the ability to understand realism and even expand beyond it. If the power of realism is felt directly in "the way things are," then surrealism is more indirect, a fiction that has the power to leap a large abyss like a metaphor. This power bears the ability to unite things in modern society that seem not to have any apparent connection. We believe that the source of modern creativity is in reality and fiction which, like a double sided mirror, cannot be parted.

Birth | Those who gained wisdom by eating the forbidden apple fruitmust live carrying their original sin.We can relate this to how humansexit from the comfort of their mother's womb, and in the process of developing wisdom, they subconsciously become impure as they are forced to feed on others for survival.However, there is a beauty in how we struggle, make decisions, and find meaningin this transient life of ours.

Aging | Turn fragility inside out and we may find beauty, Beauty can be found in semipermanent things, but as the Japanese contemplated the “appreciation of the fleeting nature of beauty,” it is in herently something that is taken away from us. The definition of beauty has wavered as it sifted through thousands of years of time, and the beauty of balloons is still in a state of fragility. The balloon is rather frail in comparison to its stronger counterparts andunlike other semipermanent objects, it has a considerably short lifespan. We can talk extensively about what beauty is because all things that once took shape will age and face an imminent death. Beauty itself appears in how we seek the unattainable answer to what beauty is. It conflicts with our purpose and shards of decay pierce through the passing of time.

Imagination | There is an abundance of imagination that lays dormant within adelusion. However, that imagination is nonexistentuntil it takes on a tangible form or symbol. All imagination must pass through a deep tunnel to become reality. The darker the tunnel the imagination is in, the more detail we see when a light shines onto it.

biophilia special |

Photographer | Kenji Kubo

Björk “DNA Dress” | After hearing about the concept for Bjork's live performance, Biophilia, which means "an appreciation of life," we experimented with the theme of predicting the future of the 21st century via science and nature. Generally, science and nature conflict with one another, as they are "things created by humans" and "things created by non-human phenomena," respectively. We have a tendency to define ourselves by looking from different angles to understand the physical territory we occupy, but like the double helix structure of DNA, our culture is passed onto the next generation through the formation of oppositions and unions. When we delve into those unions, we are taken back to the origins of the universe which is where our existence was first created. The creation of new life, then, holds a comprehensive meaning that encompasses even the conflict between science and nature.

Overturn | Preconceived notions are accepted widely by society and shared amongst the masses. These notions which have been developed as common knowledge with each layer of history has created a thick wall that can potentially block the fluidity that exists within our society. When fluidity is lost, society become exhausted and faces a massive death. In the way that our cells promote regeneration by way of apoptosis, we must accept the small deaths and embrace fluidity within ourselves.
