+cruz and Shane represented W+K Tokyo Lab at Pictoplasma in Berlin two weekends ago. We took an overnight flight Weds night, landing in Berlin with no sleep on Thurs. morning. The event was held at this building/convention center called the Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt.

Inside the large open area when you walk in was an installation by Friends with You, including a giant smiling inflatable bouncy house.

In the basement was the gallery exhibition, with many excellent character based artworks by a wide range of international artists, some of which you can see in our photos, as well as here.

On Thursday we went and caught the presentation by Saiman Chow, and it was really inspirational for me to see his talk. Saiman is a fellow Art Center alum, and he remarked something like it was the most expensive art school you could go to. 😀

Later on, we went and visited gallery Neurotitan, which is now hosting the Tokyo.Ten exhibition. You walk through a small alley and staircase covered in amazing street art to enter the gallery. Neurotitan also has an excellent shop with design and art books, zines, records and T-shirts.

In the other half of the gallery was a rad show of pixel art made from Post-it notes.

Other shops in the vicinity we visited were O.K. and Pro qm, two of my favorites discovered on my last visit to Berlin. A guy called Digiki had apparently visited Pro qm just before us…

o.k.

That night we met friends Aleksandra and Oliver for dinner in the same area. Most the restaurants had closed by this time, but we found one vietnamese place to eat at.

Between all these things we were taking time to prepare the showreel and presentation back at the hotel. We kept preparing in the backstage area up to about 10 minutes before the presentation actually started. Then +cruz started his talk. I joined in later. A lot of people were in the auditorium which was nice. We met a number of nice peeps after it was over.

Now that that was over, we turned toward preparing our visual presentation for the live show that would happen that night. The venue was the Tape club, Heidestrasse.

We saw this really cool band called Motherland perform in the same room where we did our visual projection. We caught their rehearsal, and later their live show, which was a collaboration with a art/fashion label Andrea Crews and had some fresh Disney-fusion styling. Here’s a couple videos of our favorite song in both rehearsal and live performance. We thought they were singing “touch bunny” in the chorus but were dying to know the real lyrics. Please send us your music!!!

Our show started and we took over the three screen projection and a white sphere for over an hour. There was no DJ; we let the sound from the videos flow.

The reaction was good and we got a number of compliments. Finally we left the club sometime between 3 and 4. The next day we got up around 8 to fly out.

Luckily we somehow arrived at Narita before the tragic exploding FedEx jet shut air traffic down that same morning. We went straight to W+K after that for work. It was a hectic but fun trip and we got to meet a lot of cool people. Hopefully we can visit Berlin again soon.
