GOT AN EXCUSE TO DIP OUT TO SEE CHRISTIE’S LECTURE SERIES ON MURAKAMI TALK ABOUT OTAKU CULTURE – FOR ALL THOSE THAT DON’T KNOW ITS ABOUT MANGA CULTURE AND VIDEO GAMES….AND HIS PHILOSOPHY ON DESIGN AND CREATION, HE SAID SOMETHING THAT WAS REALLY INTERESTING TO ME WHEN HE SAID ASKED HIMSELF WHAT ART IS, AND HE REALIZED THAT ART IS WHEN THERE IS A BLOODLESS REVOLUTION (IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY) AND I REALLY THINK THAT IS INTERESTING, AND HE ALSO MENTIONED ABOUT HOW NOWADAYS ART IS ALL RECYCLED AND THAT IS ONE OF HIS MAIN THEMES AS WELL, BUT WHAT I MOST RESPECTED WAS AT THE END OF THE TALK HE TOLD US THAT HIS MAIN DESIGN THEORY IS ABOUT BRINGING PEACE AROUND THE WORLD, INSTEAD OF OUTDOING EVERY COMPETITOR OR PEOPLE IN YOUR FIELD, ITS REALLY ABOUT BRINGING PEACE INTO THIS WORLD. RESPECT..
