DMM.PLANETS Art by teamLab - A World of Wonder

Have you ever been to an installation that kept you in awe and wonder from start to finish? DMM.PLANETS Art by teamLab ~A World of Wonders~ definitely made an impact this summer. With multiple rooms of some of teamLab's large-scale artworks, visitors can explore and immerse themselves in digital artwork and the largest Crystal Universe ever shown. 

The eye-opening experience begins with with a massive "Wander through the Crystal Universe," where the entire room is a three-dimensional light space. The lights illuminate in a sequence of patterns, creating different movement and color. I walked through most of the space, and was able to photograph the room from different angles. Gorgeous!

The second large installment was "Drawing on the Water Surface Created by the Dance of Koi and People - Infinity." My friend and I waded through water that was almost knee deep, the entire surface being digital artwork that moves with the movement of the person. Digital koi swim in the water, but the cool thing is, none of them are programmed beforehand, which means nothing can be replicated and the artwork is a continuous work in progress. I definitely wore the wrong pants for this one.

Lastly, we entered the "planetarium," but instead of viewing stars, we lied down on our backs to enjoy "Floating in the Falling Universe of Flowers." Apparently, the flowers and butterflies that forever float across space are rendered in real time by a computer program. Sunflowers, daisies, roses, pansies, flower petals of numerous colors would whoosh by, mesmerizing and surprising us.  It's amazing how every minute, every second is one of a kind and can never be replicated.

今週末は、31日まで開催されているDMM.PLANETS Art by teamLab に行ってきました。この夏、とてもインパクトのあるイベントとなりました。TeamLabの一番スケールの大きい作品、主にデジタルワークとCrystal Universe、を体験することができるんです。

Wander through the Crystal Universe」は、圧倒的に今まで見たことのないような世界観でした。光でできている彫刻がいくつも天井から垂れ下がっていて、この集合体によって、宇宙空間を表現したインスタレーションとなっているんです。広いスペースを歩き周り、色んな角度から永遠と変化するキラキラライトの写真を撮ることができました。

次に、水の世界に突入しました。「Drawing on the Water Surface Created by the Dance of Koi and People - Infinity」では、膝ぐらいまでの水面の上に、自由に動くデジタルアートと触れることができました。七色のアートが、人の動きと共に動く。鯉も足の周りを泳いでいました!事前にプログラミングしたものではなく、全てが新しいもので、二度と再現できないものなのがすごく不思議です。

最後に、プラネタリウム。とはちょっと違うんですけど、床の上を仰向けになって、舞い浮かぶ色とりどりの花、花びらと蝶蝶を眺めることができる「Floating in the Falling Universe of Flowers」というスペースです。こちらも自由に動くデジタルアートで、同じものが再現されない。私の好きなひまわりが頭の真上を自由自在に踊るように浮かんでいた時は、見とれるばかりでした。

31日までやっているので、行ってみて下さい!詳しくはDMM.PLANETS Art by teamLABへ!

Summer vibes in Japan

Set-up: Zaful; sunglasses: zeroUV
earrings: Beach Closet; choker: Zara
shoes: See by Chloe (Farfetch)

It's nearly impossible to be surrounded by this much greenery whilst in Tokyo - the 3-hour trip near the coast of Chiba was well worth it. This hibiscus-print setup from Zaful looks way better against the green, anyway.

Caudalie skin exfoliator & face masks

I think I first read about Caudalie on Into the Gloss, and tried their Grape Water when I was in college. Last year, I picked up the Instant Detox Mask, and since it was so true to its name, I decided to add a few more to my collection, including a face exfoliator. 

From left to right: The Deep Cleansing Exfoliator really smoothes my skin, and I use this 2-3 times a week for baby-soft skin. I use the Mousturizing Mask if I need to plump my skin and restore moisture. It also semi-reduces the redness I naturally have in my skin. The Glycolic Peel Mask is also a great mask for reducing redness and brightening your skin tone. I use this before I have a photo shoot or before going to an event or party. And last but not least, the Instant Detox Mask. It only takes 5-10 minutes of your skincare routine to really clean out your pores with this pink clay mask. Great for traveling and I absolutely love it!

Do you have a favorite Caudalie product? Let me know in the comment section!

Caudalieというスキンケアブランドを初めて知ったのは、多分Into the Glossを読んだ時だと思います。大学生の時にグレープウオーターを使ってみて、去年はインスタントデトックスマスクもピックアップしてみました。すごい効果があったので、他のマスクも使ってみたいと思い、いくつか購入してみました。

Katharine Hamnet AW 2016 at Opening Ceremony

This was my first time viewing a Katharine Hamnett collection, and I absolutely loved it. Something about the oversized silhouettes and the touches of red here and there really have me excited for fall/winter. Held at the Opening Ceremony store in Omotesando, my friends and I enjoyed a reception party and fashion show. Their pop-up shop in Opening Ceremony started on the 20th, so go check it out! 

初めてKatharine Hamnett のコレクションを拝見しましたが、すぐに好きになってしまいました。オーバーサイズのシルエットもそうですし、ポイントカラーの赤がとてもお洒落。秋冬のトレンドが楽しみになりました。今回は、pop-up shop のローンチを祝うためのイベントで、Opening Ceremony表参道店で開催されました。ファッションショーもあったので、服の印象が本当に良かったです。20日からpop-upが始まったので、是非チェック!
