Travelin’ With Yoshitomo Nara
I was trying to help Yoshitomo Nara set up his computer with the system in the lecture room, McCormick 101. I had spoken the evening before without a hitch, and the system and his computer weren’t talking to each other the next day. It took a while, but we got it going. I was hoping Nara would do the presentation in English, but he opted to go with a highly over qualified translator – the Head Chair of East Asian Studies. David Howell.
His katsu sweatshirt was too cool. Yabaton. They make their katsu with a miso sauce. It’s in Nagoya.
This is more adjusting of the projection. I like how the light hits his face from the projection screen along with one of his paintings. It’s a cool shot.
Nara points to the sleeping Tomio Koyama. After getting so excited by the Norman Rockwell painting in the Nassau Inn bar, he crashed out.
This is dinner at a campus related place. Good food actually. The Too Cute! conference was coming to a close. The woman, Anne, who did a lot of the work to get the conference going is slightly pictured. I regretably didn’t get a photo of myself with her. She’s cool.
