On sunday I met up with Keiko and we went to a big design show called Design Festa, which is held twice a year at the big conference centre out near the bay. It was a massive space and packed full of artists, designers and musicians. All doing very interesting and quirky things. It was mesmerising, but very interesting too. It's intriguing to see how the Japanese approach design and art and I loved the way that they mixed everything together too - manga cartoonists next to girls selling cutesy felted rabbits, next to artists covering their boards in amazing creations, next to women in outlandish make-up and costumes, all whilst musicians strike up and play a few tunes.
