fish + braids = fishwithbraids

fish + braids = fishwithbraids
the experience of art thrives at the top of the bell curve in a place of speculation (and not consensus), hypotheses (and not conclusions) and belief (not knowledge).
To stay at the top of the bell curve, as Buergel and Noack might say,
the best art must make us not understand,
which corresponds to a state of sustained curiosity that provokes us to change something about ourselves in an effort to understand.

Evolve Wear at New World Fair 2012

    Casimir Alexander,

Part of the New World Fair 2012
at the Queens Museum of Art, Flushing Corona Park, July 21, noon - 6 pm

holding a summit on  innovations for a Shrinking World in an Expanding Universe, while pointing out Unity and Peace Through Understanding. Exhibitions that Illuminate New Ideas, Technology, and ways to achieve Sustainability for a Healthier, more balanced, ecofriendly & ethical lifestyle.

 2012 The New Dawn
Many experts, scientists, artists and philosophers have reached the conclusion that the human experience is reaching some kind of ultimate climax. We are at the cusp of a universal transition, an evolution if you will. This shift is not just limited to historical tangibles like globalization, the internet, global/universal warming and the destruction of
the environment, but is deeply embedded in almost all of the great spiritual traditions of humanity. This approaching singularity is truly the most profound event in history. Everything that we know, everything that we are, is about to undergo a substantial and
radical alternation.

(curatorial statement, Uta Brauser)

With Art playing an important role in human evolution, the creative and innovative spirit manifests itself in fashion statements and wearable expressions.

This collection of storytelling visuals, giving praise to the universal spirit with "In Beauty I walk",
honoring the gifts of what surrounds us
or the unexpected use of discarded products to extend the material's life, each creation narrates with a poetic or philosophical approach to fashion for the future.

At the Museum Evolve Wear 3  is manifested  with 
- a selection of wearable works in the gallery room
- videos by various presenters in the theater room
- individual performers and artists walking around in their wardrobes

Masae Satouchis Mission: Creating a healthy world through colors.
Color is a universal language, it is spritual, it expresses and it attracts special divine energies.
In this video the colorful artists you see are re-coloring the world in peace.
Each of the seven color energies has its power and its art. Experience the transformation, strength and beauty of color..
