When I was in elementary school, I wrote a paper in physics about the stars and planets. Well, not exactly - I copied it from a book. My teacher told me it was all very interesting, asking me at the same time whether I understood though. I didn't.

Still, I have this thing with the Universe. You could call it a longterm relationship with ups and downs: many ups and downs. I have always been very curious and confused at the same time when thinking about the terms: space, the universe and cosmos. As much as complex the subject is, as equally intrigued I am actually. 

When I heard that MORI ART MUSEUM is presenting an exhibition called THE UNIVERSE AND ART in Tokyo, Roppongi - I knew that I would definitely have to go and see it for myself, Mori Art Museum being my favourite museum in Tokyo (I recommend registering for the Annual Passport if you live in Tokyo!).

The exhibition is divided into four parts: How Have Humans through the Ages Viewed the Universe, The Universe as Space-Time, A New View of Life - Do Aliens Exist?, Space Travel and the Future of Humanity


Each section is presenting a different view and understanding of the Universe while showcasing various items of historic astronomical nature, sci-fi and religious art objects, and several other installations including an amazing interactive installation by teamLab, who again did a great job on blending in art, science and technology. They are also the creative minds behind the very popular recent Wandering through the Crystal Universe installation in Odaiba (approx. waiting time: 2 hours). You can check out other works here. 










Currently, I am working on editing my vlog that I recently filmed in Tokyo. Stay tuned for that as I will be showing some footage from the exhibition. If you have seen my How To Pack Your Suitcase video, you may have recognised that I am taking my sleeping or chill time quite seriously, based on my loungewear: NASA t-shirt or a NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC tee displaying an astronaut in space. I am literally drifting away from earth, especially if there is good music around like dvsn's SEPT.5TH record (give it a listen here).

If you happen to live in Tokyo or are planning on going there soon, the exhibition will be held until January 9th, 2017. Also, Lufthansa is currently having a promotion for flights to Japan from Germany in the months of December to February!
