How To Build an Owl

1. Decide you must.

2. Develop deep respect
for feather, bone, claw.

3. Place your trembling thumb
where the heart will be:
for one hundred hours watch
so you will know
where to put the first feather.

4. Stay awake forever.
When the bird takes shape
gently pry open its beak
and whisper into it: mouse.

5. Let it go.

Future self

Made is a curious and pretty bling space within the Haus des Reisens on Alexanderplatz – their focus is to bring people from different media together and work out a new project, so you never really know what to expect, which I suppose is the idea. It’s a little hit and miss at times, but their latest collaboration this Sunday sounds promising indeed, with a prestigious triple bill uniting London-based media collective Random International, renowned choreographer Wayne McGregor and composer Max Richter.

“My mum came in and I switched to porn, much easier to explain”

If you’re not familiar with the impossibly pink world of the Harajuku Girl, try the below video of the subculture’s poster-girl icon, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (utterly contagious, if nothing else). It’s a particularly alien world of brightly coloured toys, insanely vivid clothing and… well, as a comment on the aforementioned YouTube clip goes… “my mum came in and I switched to porn, much easier to explain”. Precisely.

For the purpose of this post, you need only know that the poster-girl icon in question is ‘big in Japan’. Blogger/model/singer/entrepreneur, and all-round bundle of cutesy madness – the 19 year-old’s debut full-length album, Pamyu Pamyu Revolution, is set to be released at the end of May; and Steve Nakamura – the art director of its accompanying 60+ page photobook – has sent through some exclusive snaps for our bemused perusal. Thanks Steve, I think…
