Japanese animated film Cornelis by Ayaka Nakata has won the Award for Excellence at last year’s edition of Asia Digital Award in the Moving Images category… it’s a classic animated film ‘that stems from a foundation of dance choreography’, as nicely said by people form Cartoon Brew.
Dancer and choreographer Hiroaki Umeda had been treated here with special care… His dancing technique, space design and approach to technology have made it so… I found this video thanks to DBM Mediterranean Dance Network which posted Umeda’s new video ‘Adapting for distortion’ on their Facebook profile several hours ago.

‘Shelter for the Feeling’ is a space installation consisted of sound, lace, fibre-glass bars, foam and canvas. It’s based on personal story of Japanese contemporary artist Akiko Sato exploring her life voyage and the history of Croatian tradition of lace-making.
With the assistance of ten lace-makers from the ‘Lace Makers Association Danica Brosiler’ from Lepoglava she created a portable lace tent that symbolizes home.

OK, folkz! It’s just about perfect time for a new section on my blog, and that would be Readaholic. Yeah, we’re gonna read together some selected (read: free) books, articles and comics I will dig for you on the web.
It’s not gonna be very demanding or something, promise… Coz, I know that it’s not the same to have printed book in your hands… I don’t wanna make any comparison with anything, right?!
