1. A Japanese creative lab called PARTY opened an exhibit where guests can have their pictures taken and converted into figurines.
Called OMOTE 3D SHASHIN KAN, the exhibit runs from Nov. 24 through Jan 15; reservations are completely filled up, and there is no waiting list. It costs between 21,000 and 42,000 yen per person, or about $260 to $500 dollars, but there’s a discount for pairs and groups.
The real question is, what do you do with the figurine once you have it? Do you build it the miniature dollhouse of your dreams, complete with a moat full of corgis and a room devoted entirely to pizza? Is it like The Sims, or Second Life, where you project all your hopes and fears and desires onto this tiny avatar? Or do you display it, static, for guests to see? Or (most likely) do you leave it in a drawer or on a shelf and one day while you’re cleaning, stumble across it, and feel a funny jolt when you realize that it’s you?
