Q&A: Replies sent + Website redesign + Burma and China

When I decided (following your suggestion) to set a Q&A session for the first anniversary of this blog, I thought it could be a good idea to let you ask me ‘some’ questions. But I didn’t expect there would be so many! I hope it doesn’t sound pretentious, not that I received ten of thousands of questions, but some were kinda ... More

Tim Tsui and Alice Chan at the Galeries Lafayette (Paris)



First of all I am sorry I didn’t answer yet to your questions but I received A LOT more than expected. So please indulge me some more days 😉 Yesterday I was walking on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris, I had an important meeting nearby. I was in a hurry as I was stuck in a traffic jam… I went by the Galeries Lafayette and then something caught my ... More

Today is this blog’s first anniversary — Geez!

One year from now, same day and almost same time, I was launching this blog. Like I said in my first post, I’m not very comfortable talking about me, my personal life… But I really enjoy talking about my work, my projects, my thoughts, my sources of inspiration. And I did in near 50 posts since April last year. Waow! I impress myself, I never ... More

Will the Sama Water Tank save the world?

The Sama from the World Of Sama, as you may know, have a duty: protect humans and sometimes plan ahead like the Sama Water Tank does. Water will soon be an issue, if not already; it is soon to be a rare commodity… The ocean noise, the constant sound of a waterfall, a fountain shooting up water, having a tub or simply drink it; water is essential for ...

Michel Gondry and Emilie Simon: whimsical awakened dreams



Movies and music, but also design and art; for each I have my preferences I share with you on this blog. This time it is about two French artists with strong personalities and their one-of-a-kind creative world. If I tell you Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep and more recently Be Kind Rewind? I hope you think Michel Gondry right ... More
The Sama Go Green! Series 02, Limited Edition T-shirts

I’ve been very busy lately but I got a good news for those who were –desperately, as I read on several comments- waiting for the new Sama t-shirts. Some of you had the opportunity to buy one last year during my exhibition in Paris, but they were not officially on sell before March 08. Since last week, the Sama Go Green! Series 02 T-shirtsare ...

Darfur: a World Wide Role Playing Game

I’m not talking about the Legend of Zelda here or any other MMORPG, but about the much less dreamlike crisis in Darfur in a very specific ‘real life game genre’ I dub World Wide Role Playing Game – WWRPG. Last year I wrote an article titled: ‘Darfur: History, a never ending story’and I was wondering if we could learn from ... More

Car chases in movies: Bullitt, Terminator 2, Mad Max 2…

I’ve already talked about gun scenes in movies (From Scarface to Smokin’ Aces: the art of the gun scene), now it is about car chases in movies; it is not a genre by itself but some chases are classics. In my opinion, Bullitt (1968), with Franck Bullitt chasing the bad guys, up and down the steep hills of San Francisco for almost 8 minutes, ... More

Frank Gehry, Oscar Niemeyer and Richard Meier in Paris

The trio is not physically in Paris right now but what they built is. Many architects, more or less famous, worked in Paris and gave the city ones of its finest and amazing buildings (and I am not talking about Baron Haussmann here). Gehry, Niemeyer and Meier are world wide known architects, and they are still involved in diverse projects at the four ... More

I already have several vinyl figures from this artist: Mars-1 Observer Green, Red, Gray, Black and Zoltron Edition, and the set counts now two others: Mars-1 Observer ... More
