Keita Takahashi (高橋 慶太) Born 1975, known for his quirky, innovative videogames Katamari Damacy and Nobi Nobi Boy, Takahashi was invited to create a new playground at Woodthorpe Grange in Nottingham, Britain. “I hope that whole families will be able to play in the park together. It would be great if people’s pet dogs can also play with the equipment. What gives me the most joy is seeing people having fun. [Playgrounds and video games] are both fun things. They actually aren’t that different.” Says Takahashi. That is what I particularity like about Keita Takahashi. If your aim is to see people having fun, why limit yourself to a single branch?
The dude stopped making video games to design playgrounds—he’s probably the most cheerful person in the world.
feeling empty and lonely so i am buying nice shoes in place of being able to relate to people
This body of work is an exploration of the extent of cultural appropriation and encourages a discussion about it. I give the appropriator and the appropriated the opportunity to defend themselves and create a dialogue between them, while maintaining a neutral stance myself. I am not attacking those who appropriate, merely educating and creating awareness. I’m also exploring appropriation myself, and discovering the carying degrees of it within this visual conversation.
I’d like to make this a long term exploration, with a lot more participants as a form of generation-wide debate. If you’d like to be photographed to add your point of view, please do not hesitate to pop me a message here or an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we could work something out!
I love tumblr and the like because it’s the closest I will ever get to my childhood dream of being able to read everyone’s diaries heehee
I WILL NEVER STOP LOSING IT AT “FUCK YOU LADY.”
Oh my god the “FUCK YOU LADY” is the best
YESSS THIS POST IS BACK
one nice thing about being very sad* this year is that I’ve had some wonderful conversations with people about being sad and have heard lots of great experiences from people and generally felt closer to people because we are able to talk about this stuff.
so er, cheers, my sad friends! I hope you are not actually sad anymore
*I have never felt comfortable referring to it as ‘depression’ even though…that’s what it is
