Tokyo Lost in Translation: With the placard of a maid cafe, a maid-dressed girl tries to catch customers in Ikebukuro where yakuza, students, animation lovers, and/ or businessmen hang out. Tokyo is extremely modern, multicultural, and international megacity. Yet, due to the nature itself, the city also often makes people –- not only foreigners but Japanese -- confuse or misunderstand each other, though that is why Tokyo is so attractive. This week, I take the account of #reduxpictures and show such feelings in Tokyo and beyond.

New York City, NY | March 22, 2014 The light and the tunnel. #24hourproject

Welcome to another edition of #ArtThursday! The Hundertwasserhaus, an apartment complex in Vienna, embodies Austrian painter, architect and sculptor Friedensreich Hundertwasser's passionate rejection of the straight line. In his lifetime, he went so far as to call straight lines "godless and immoral." Built between 1983 and 1985 alongside architects Joseph Krawina and Peter Pelikan, Hundertwasserhaus has undulating floors, a grass-covered roof and 250 trees growing inside the rooms, their limbs reaching out windows. The Hundertwasser House is now one of Vienna's most visited buildings and a part of Austria's cultural heritage. To view more photos and videos of Hundertwasserhaus, tap the blue location text above.
