I was able to catch the Issey Miyake retrospective at the National Center of Art in Tokyo, right before it closed, but couldn’t take photos. The exhibition proves that Miyake is pioneer in textile and experimental material from his use of horsehair, paper, silk, and his  invention of “pleating.” My favorite works came from his “Reality Lab” where he developed origami clothing – garments that lie completely flat as geometric forms, but then become 3-dimensional breathing sculptures on the body.


Trash and netting–  my obsession continues in Japan.
