Editor's Pick

Are all Internet memes secretly manufactured in a warehouse in the Japanese countryside? W+K Tokyo aims to address this question, and more, in Japan's Internet Backstreets, a documentary directed by W+K Tokyo art director Shingo Ohno (a.k.a. Merce Death) and filmed with various W+K Tokyo Lab collaborators and digital creators from Japan. It aims to provide a glimpse of the type of creative culture that exists online, behind the language barrier, on the backstreets of the Internet in Japan. You haven't seen the intersection of digital and physical until you meet the film's innovators such as the Real Life Retweet (who shouts out things you tell him), the man who assigned IP addresses to stones and the inventor of a "real time party in a Google Docs file."
