  • Collab Exhibition Opens Featuring DANDELION PROJECT & Japan Sinks Drama Series

    05.October.2021 | SPOT

    An exhibition between the art initiative DANDELION PROJECT, formed by the creative company NAKED, and the TBS drama series Japan Sinks: People of Hope, will be held during the month of October on the first floor of Akasaka Biz Tower in Tokyo. 

     

    The DANDELION PROJECT is inspired by the idea of world peace and hopes to help transcend barriers and connect people in an increasingly divided world. This networked initiative wants to bring this change about by planting (or installing) dandelion-inspired art around the world, while it invites people visiting these dandelion exhibits to send their prayers for peace as a digital flower in real-time. The theme of ‘hope’ found in the new Japan Sinks drama fits perfectly into this exhibition. 

     

    When you see the petals of the dandelion flow through the air after being hit with a gust of wind, that means that someone from around the world caused that to happen. Due to the recent pandemic, rather than blow on cotton wool as is usually done at these exhibits, guests can hold up their smartphones to cause the same thing to happen. The DANDELION PROJECT will also be making an appearance at Tokyo Tower, Saga Prefectural Hall, and other places, so be sure to participate in this unique exhibit!

  • Unique New Beer Released in Collaboration With HERALBONY and haccoba

    03.October.2021 | FASHION / SPOT

    Craft sake brewery haccoba is teaming up with the experimental social advocacy group HERALBONY to release an artful new brew! The All-Yeast IPA -Yay!Yay! Hazy!!- will go on sale September 26, 2021, in limited quantities. A portion of all sales of the product will go to the artist who designed the bottle. Before launch, a special discussion panel was held at the HERALBONY GALLERY, located in Iwate Prefecture. 

     

    This release marks the first collaboration between Iwate-based HERALBONY, a company aiming to make strides in the social welfare sphere, and haccoba, a unique craft sake brewer from Fukushima.

    Scratch Works Yay!Yay! Fukushima. – Yukihito Okabe

     

    HERALBONY continues to make a positive impact in the community, with many sympathizing with their vision and approach to making social change. Artist Yukihito Okabe’s original work Scratch Works Yay! Yay! Fukushima was made for this collaboration and was inspired by the sight, feeling, and taste of the materials that go into sake production. The way each vivid color overlaps with another to create new colors is similar to the process of fermentation, in which each microorganism weaves together with another to create something new. By combining art and alcohol, more people might be inspired to stop and ponder the issues currently facing the world. 

     

    The All Yeast IPA -Yay! Yay! Hazy!!- is an India Pale Ale that brings a powerful hops flavor. It was inspired by the idea of blending the hoppiness of an IPA with the charm of sake, and the beverage was brewed with a unique blend of rice malt and steamed rice, leading to more sweetness, acidity, and umami. Beer lovers, don’t miss this!
