Japanese Capsule Apartments

I saw this brilliant little article on 70s Japanese capsule apartments, this weekend, source here.

Photographer Noritaki Minami documented the Nakagin Capsule Tower, of 1972, in this superb series of images. Each apartment offered 'micro-living', being just over 100 square feet each.

The photos are recent however - and perhaps reveal a tension between the ideal the architects felt offered residents, versus the reality of contemporary life. You can see the whole series here.

The Other Art Fair

Time for a shameless plug.

In about a month, I'm exhibiting at the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, as one of 100 currently unrepresented artists showing at The Other Art Fair.

The event takes place during Frieze Week, and over 10,000 visitors are expected. The selection panel included Yinka Shonibare MBE (Turner Prize nominee), Rebecca Wilson (Director of the Saatchi Gallery) and David Jaffe (Senior Curator, The National Gallery).

More information can be found on my Other Art Fair profile page, here,  and also on my own site, here.
