Last year I went to Japan, traveling around Hokkaido and Kansai. The trip was a part of my current art project, as well as a chance to check out the local VJ-scene. In Kyoto I met up with my college Akira Miyanaga during his exhibition at Kodama Gallery. VJ Akira has a master degree in fine art and teaches at Kyoto Seika University & Kyoto University of Art and Design. He is also the co-founder of Gura Studio, where several artists live and work. I invited Akira to Sweden and on the 11th of June he will be performing at Volt festivalen in Uppsala.

I’ve been mailing back and forth with my buddy Leo Hallin a.k.a. Leolyxxx during 2009. Leo is a talented illustrator who recently transfered in to the animation scene. He has done some remarkable animations together with fellow artist Finsta. Their animation “Bollen” has reached +15k hits on Vimeo. Leo has talked to me about using his animations for live visuals and he recently took one step closer by making this really nice loop for O-Baren, a popular Stockholm bar.
