What does it productive we’ll be when situated next door to mean? each other. They are each legitimate equations by famous mathematicians. There seem to be two main filters for how the world around us is interpreted, and the concept for this collection 35 of paintings was to mix art and science, emotion and logic to see if it was possible to view the world from both positions at the same time. I contrasted beauty with reason. In each case the painting is translated with both figurative brush strokes and cold clinical equations, for example, to see if someone’s facial expressions could be substituted with theories that mean, essentially, the same thing. Design & Life This is a direction I imagine I’ll be following for a long time, as I’m only beginning to scratch the surface, it’s very complicated, and I get confused quite easily.

I learned how to make basic tomato sauce from cooking show of Molto Batali, who is one of the most famous Italian chef in New York. The original recipe includes carrots, onions, fresh thyme, garlics, and cans of tomatoes. I always cook with what I have on hand. For my experience, garlics and cans of whole tomato are the must.

  30. 30. D& L See! What's happening in the world? We will show you around. Sep/2007 issue 07 59 Born in Tokyo in 1965. Kashiwa Sato graduated from Tama Art University with a degree in graphic design. After working for the top advertising company, Hakuhodo Inc., he established the quot;SAMURAIquot; creative studio in 2000. He has received many prizes such as Mainichi Design Award, Tokyo ADC Grand Prix, Asahi Advertising Award, Kamekura Yusaku Award, Japan Package Design Award Gold Medal. His latest works include UNIQLO SOHO NY, and UT Store Harajuku. Kashiwa Sato's works are very loud but simple. He loves to use a lot of primary colors, geometry shapes and a lot of repetitions. In other words, we can say his works are extremely lively but in the same time with minimally, directly message. I think you can call it minimalism, in a different way to see his works. He is definitely one of the most influential designer in the 21 century. Des ig n & Life kashiwasato.com
