Tadahiro Uesugi has a gallery show in Japan and we can't go! Bummer! So, I know we get a healthy dose of his work from his website already--it's never enough with us, isn't it?--and we did meet the man himself (need a refresher on that event? Here). But the unique thing about this is that it is his work with actual media with some (or all, I'm not sure). Aww, heck, I really don't need much of a reason to want to hop on a plane and see his work in person again. So, it kills me that we can't go. Big baby that I am. And I can't read Japanese. Lucky for me Enrico does. See what he found out about it here.

The Shinkong Mitsukoshi department store in Taipei recently hosted an exhibit of artwork from the film, including beautiful sculpted sets.
