HITSPAPER issue 01 <ART MAGAZINE>

It was first published by creative web magazine HITSPAPER in May, 2013: art magazine “HITPAPER.” We worked on a project, creative direction, art direction, graphic design, writing and editing. The theme of being first monumental issue was “upside down fetus.” We imagined the world being “upside down” within our mother’s womb before giving a birth in this world. The basic theme had a message: “Let’s look the world getting back to a point of primitive or new view, not a point of daily or common view.”
In the contents, there are several printed articles. A plant shop’s interview, which called “Qusamura” with the concept of conveying the beauty of plants which have been collected. A report of the new style of food lab which called “Noma” pursuing diversity and sharing through the food. A column called “the cultural landscape architecture by law” by a lawyer Tasuku Mizuno, who read and understand a “landscape” standing up when overlooking the culture from the viewpoint of law. “Lapka” is a device which measure radiation and calculates nitrate concentration. “ONE” is a free space that connects Japan, Asia and the rest of the world. A report of a talk session called “an evening with a certain science and design,” which pursues the common point such as creativity, a way of thinking and a process from both sides crossing the points of view of science and design/art. We aim an art magazine not only to reveal the lines between modern design, art, culture, food and academia writhe and blend together, but we also aim it as a reading material which is “immutable even through changing times.”
