Title: All Things WTAPS./249th entry「31」

The 2015 AW catalog shoot is done.
This time also the image cuts are detached from a seasonal feel; I really look forward to be able to show this since it is very WTAPS-like in a way how WTAPS has been up to now, and what can be said as the roots of WTAPS has been featured.
It is already the 6th catalog image cut shoot since starting this new format. The staff and also the routine has been repeated without much change. While maintaining a distance that is just right along with a professional tempo, After the shoot, I always look back and feel how extremely lucky I am to be able to have people that help out proceeding with work in a mild atmosphere keeping a distance that is just right, while maintaining a professional tempo.

Title: All Things WTAPS./248th entry「A good example of use」

There are many times when you may have taken a particular liking to a certain item and bought it, but you are not sure of how to use it with things in your house or your wardrobe. Big mistakes, such as from impulse buying, have decreased since I am older now or maybe since I reflect a lot; still there are times when I am not sure at all, if everything is good, after bringing it home thinking that it should blend. How horrible.

Times like this, when I see someone that does not care about such things using the item naturally, I end up with a feeling like I have lost the burden on my shoulders, a spark, a reassuring feel of how it should be.

Title: All Things WTAPS./247th entry「Workshop」

GIP first appeared in 2009 as a limited shop in shop inside Blackflag. This event resurrected the dormant FORTY PERCENTS AGAINST RIGHTS®, and as a workshop it showed and taught zine making, silkscreening, along with a talk show; I feel there was much to be conveyed by being able to experience together the roots of the brand.
Professional editors also joined, and this event which did not have any boundaries between those expressing and those receiving, was a very valuable and memorable time. I happen to think about this at times when doing work that may seem like it has nothing to do with it, such as when taking photographs or setting up fixtures. Each time I think about it, I realize the experience from then, has become my flesh and blood.

Title: All Things WTAPS./246th entry「My impression」

I use a recorder to record conversations not only for meetings, but when given tasks regarding several things, when I am not sure if I can grasp subtle details, and also when I feel just jotting down a memo is not enough.
When I listen to it later, I hear things like my voice being too loud and not being able to quite hear what the other person was saying, responding to the other person in the conversation at the wrong timing and not getting the necessary term I needed, suddenly flipping pages of a notebook, and continually clicking a pen; I feel regretful at the actions which I take that can be considered quite disruptive.
Although it is useful, it is also something that brings out a little self-hatred towards myself; a recorder seems to help out also so I can reflect on my attitude when listening to people, my tempo, my understanding, and also my bad habits.

Title: All Things WTAPS./245th entry「Learning by using your own hands」

The feeling of satisfaction you get after being able to do something, may be a little bit more emotional than how it was when you were a child.
Trying something for the first time, doing it, is full of surprises and newly found things even more when it is something you never even thought of doing once in your life. Fumbling but trying hard, of course making small mistakes, but somehow in the end making it. The preparation beforehand, getting the things ready that are needed is even exciting and of course there is no need to mention how the main event that is the glamorous part is; even cleaning up afterwards is fun.
What is different from childhood, is how afterwards I felt some strong emotions thinking about how "even after becoming an adult there are things you do for the first time".
