ART WORK: GHIBLIARY
By underlining the characteristic of Studio Ghibli fans, Cuong Dao’s work describes the essential role played by a fan-made fiction. Ghibliary ジブリアリ, an approach to fan art, will be presented as a closer analysis, which will investigate how a fan uses natural constitutions and spiritual themes from original movies as metaphors to expose cultural values to people and society.

ART WORK: DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
Inspired by Ben Freeth’s work (Decoded in discovery museum, Newcastle, United Kingdom). Combining Arduino and Puredata together to have some fun.
Bathhouse in Miyazaki’s best film Spirited Away is the place to start. A place for gods to come and take a bath. Place where spirits meet. As a result, decision to use fog maker was made. A design in small aquarium is the prototype of this approach. Aquarium gravel and rocks are the main needed materials for the mystic view design.
Simply testing with sound data sending from Arduino to Puredata.

While live electronic music applications have their own values to the way artists practice and experience sound, they also offer creativity to those who would like to experiment the piece. The original form of hearing that people use to treat sound has its long history until there is an awareness of the creative potentials of live electronic music. It is clear that even though there is a certain level of unpredictability, an electronic application is very well structured in a narrative defined by the sound practitioner.

Whether Andrew Giampa, an orchestral soloist from Philadelphia, said that emotions can be magnified and channelled when you perform on a stage (Giampa, 2011) or Emily Yeh, a concert audience from Portland mentioned“when you are performing in an orchestra, you are 100% living in the present” (Yeh, 2011), itis clear that playing music in a big space surely brings passion and emotion to not only the player but also the audience. What the world around us might look like in the near future even has long been an essential argument of imagination for creative people to discuss. This paper describes the concept, an early model of the prototype for the festival of Future Fictions which takes place in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne in September of 2015.

How do people from different positions celebrate their landscapes and ways of living?

When the evening had not come yet, she was sitting on a bench in front of the civic centre. Wind blew a sudden blast into her face, but could not stop her from looking at the Church of St Thomas the Martyr, a sight that she was first in love with, as an outsider. Trees dropped their leaves again from her view that day. Staying in her terrace for years as an insider while she was counting every falling leaf for every melody from the song playing from her earphone every Sunday. Trees prepared for season, and to mark the winter maybe? How one treats herself as an insider or an outsider has very long been an axiom that many landscape architects, planners and designers have been discussing in both a way of seeing and a place of living. In this paper, we discover some of the influences that act as vital phenomena in a way why different people experience landscapes differently.
