   A graphic designer Takeshi Hamada made a cover design for
   this issue. I guess not many people knows that it is Japanese
   who makes this statelessness magazine "Tiger".
   Not only a production of "Tiger", but also he creates works for
   overseas magazines and his working place is now world
   widely expanding. He participates in the web cinema "Trunk"
   as an art director as well. 


   The fourth round of "Sound Republic" was held at Think Zone
   in Roppongi, Tokyo on the 1st of March under the theme
   "collaboration with the electro media and creators from
   various genres." There was a downpour on the event day but
   the number of visitors reached to about 900 and they enjoyed
   a mixed space of high quality sounds and motions. 
   Featuring artists are Funkstorung, Akufen, Unit9, Fixer, Klock,
   Jonny Hardstaff and others.


   "Dot Soso" is a creative event where you can enjoy a creative
   atmosphere with some nice food drinks. It is held once a
   month and features interesting guests both from Japan and
   abroad. A guest for "Dot Soso #12" was an illustrator Atsushi
   Toyama from Tokyo. From illustrations for magazines, such
   as "Casa Brutus" and "relax", producing home pages to
   editorial designs (magazines, books etc.), he is making
   various works. A collaboration with Ado Mizumori at "Versus
   Exhibition 2001" (at Shibuya Parco) was very prosperous. He
   must be a new and powerful illustrator you have to put your
   keen eyes on. 


   It was last November when "Tokyo TDC Award" was held by
   "Tokyo Typo Directors Club", which investigates the visual
   expressions of letters. An exhibition, showcasing winning
   works in this Award, will be held in this April. 


   "Philip Morris K.K. Award" is a project that digs up and
   supports young and energetic Japanese artists, who will lead
   an art scene in Japan. It has started since 1995 and its 4th
   competition was held in 2001. The total number of
   submissions reached to 1,095 works and 57 artists was
   chosen as the final winners. At "Philip Morris K.K. Art Award"
   held in last spring, 10 artists were selected from the final
   list and they have just made their debut on the international

   RESFEST 2003

   The world's biggest touring digital film festival "Resfest".
   Entries to the world tour 2003 have just begun. The quality of
   this event is getting higher year by year and many works of
   Japanese creators were introduced in last year's world tour.
   It might be your work that will be featured in the world tour
   stage next time! 


   It's the middle of summer in South Africa now and a design
   conference "Design Indaba" is going to be held in Cape Town
   this month. This year marks the 6th edition with the world
   class line-up of 22 speakers. 
   What is the advantage of participating at this conference?
   You will be exposed to the world's most esteemed designers'
   insights about where design is going. 

   OFFF 03

   A Spanish on-line flash film festival "OFFF" marks its 3rd
   year. Many creators from all over the world who use the
   Internet as their canvas will get together.
   This year's theme is "Who Is Your Superhero?" Participants
   work wil be presented including: films, conferences,
   installations, workshops, shared work areas, experimental
   music sessions, projections and multimedia exhibitions. 


   Come and have fun with us at Dot Soso. You can enjoy creative
   collaborations by creators from various genres of art. The
   next event will be held on Saturday the 22nd of March.
   We have "Hitomitoi" as a guest artist this round. Born and
   grew up in Sapporo, and working in Tokyo at the moment, she
   made her debut in 2002 with a song "Kemuri iro no koibito
   tachi" and the first album "360 degrees" will be released this
   spring. She will present you a collaboration performance with
   Sapporo-based-electronica musicians in this event for about
   one hour. Do not miss her original kaleidoscopic world! 


   This month, new gallery space 'BIN' has launched on
   cooperation with Abahouse International. BIN is a showcase
   and repository for artworks in the digital era. It is intended
   as a place for artists to exhibit and archive their digital

   Many interesting information have arrived in this issue as
   well. From Vancouver, where spring seems to be around the
   corner, check a cute picture book "Windy" by local artists. A
   cold wave hit New York City this winter. Feel this cold from a
   report. Craig Au Yeung Ying Chai is a popular comic artist in
   Hong Kong. His exhibition is now on at IdN gallery. A
   contributor at Sapporo reports a local free paper for young
   people "Micc".
