I found this back issue of ‘Senshoku Alpha’ magazine on my bookshelf that I’d picked up from a pile of unwanted books in my school library many years ago. The pictures of this amazing hand knitted playground installation always fascinated me and was the reason why I kept the magazine for so many years. I totally forgot about it until I went to the Hakone Open-air Museum this year and saw the ‘Woods of Net’.

How wonderful is this colorful climbing net playground designed by artist Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. Unfortunately you’d have to be below 13 to play in this special playground but it is still a lovely sight!

More pictures from MT Expo 2011. One of the highlights was the ‘Tape By Measure’ room where you could choose your designs and get them cut into 6 different sizes ranging from 6mm to 100mm. They had the industrial MT tape cutting machine and a staff from Kamoi factory to help you cut it. What a cute uniform! I had my tape cut in 100mm width as I am planning to revamp my kitchen with it. Can’t wait!

Wow there is really so much going on in Autumn, it’s hard to catch up! Here are some pictures of the amazing MT Expo 2011 that I went to early this week. Thanks to Hello Sandwich for giving us a great preview on the opening party. I was ecstatic walking into the awesome Dictionary Club Art School that has been fully mt-taped! All the beautiful colors and patterns were truly inspiring. I was also lucky to meet and have a nice chat with the man who started mt tape. What a great experience it was! The event will end on 8 Nov. 2011. Be sure not to miss it if you are in Tokyo!
