in+ | Tama Art University Interaction Design BFA Show

Tama Art University, commonly referred to as Tamabi, is a prestigious art school – the RISD of Tokyo – that has produced several notable artists and designers, including Naoto Fukasawa and Issey Miyake. Therefore, we like to pay attention to some of the young artists being churned out of this educational system. With less than 1 month till the exhibition, Tamabi’s information design department has launched a website showcasing the work of their graduating seniors. The work will be on display at Modapolitica in Minami-Aoyama from March 12th – 14th. Here as some pieces that caught my eye.

      thanks natalie! I appreciate that! I actually don’t have details on the calorie trade project as there was no documentation. It sounds really interesting though. If I find out anything I’ll let you know.
