Jellyfish Eyes is the first full-lenght film by world-renowned art superstar Takashi Murakami:

“Jellyfish Eyes tells the story of Masashi, a young boy who moves to a sleepy town in the Japanese countryside with his mother in the wake of a natural disaster. After returning home from his new elementary school one day, Masashi discovers a flying jellyfish-like creature whom he befriends and names Kurage-bo. Masashi soon discovers that all his classmates have similarly magical pets, known as F.R.I.E.N.D.s, which are controlled by electronic devices that the children use to battle one another. Despite their playful appearances, however, these F.R.I.E.N.D.s turn out to be part of a sinister plot that will threaten the entire town.”

How will the Universe die?
Everybody dies. The universe too? Well, probably. What are the current theories about the end of everything? And how creepy exactly are these theories? (Spoiler: very creepy). But there might be hope…

REED + RADER

Since helping to make the animated GIF a legitimate photographic editorial medium, Pamela and Matthew (aka Reed + Rader) have continued to imagine the digital possibilities in video, virtual worlds, and both internet based and physical interactive installations. Regardless of medium, Pamela and Matthew’s work is about the playful connectedness of the internet where everyone wears a mask and can be anyone, anything, and anywhere they can imagine in their digital dreams.
