There are shopping bags made
xclusively for steamed rice and a
Sweet bean jelly.
There is a whiskey bottle with a
Dick Tracy look-a-like and the
miessage, "Hi! What's up? Why don't
,lve get together and make a wild trio?
Just you, me and Cobra!"
There is also a find-a-box that
looks like it inspired Rubik's Snake.
The Cobra Box folds into a rectangle
-r a square, depending on the model,
and leaves a hole in the center.
All can be found at the University
School of Art's Contemporary
tapanese Package Design exhibition.
.- The exhibition will be at the
School of Art's Jean Paul Slusser
tallery through January 30. The
packages show an "intriguing use of
design using very simple materials,"
laid Marion Jackson, director of the
exhibition.
Some of the package designs were
selected from shops in Japan "akin to
yery good department stores." Others
wre for "commercial products that you
:might see at a grocery store," she
.said, adding that the exhibit "seems

to have a range from cleverness that's
fun to very sophisticated design."
Jackson explained that the3
Japanese go to great lengths withx
their packaging because they want
gifts to be well-presented. In Japan,
"packaging of gifts has a long-
standing cultural tradition," she said.
The wrappings are sometimes
conventional, using glass or paper,
and sometimes unconventional,
using bamboo or cork.
At the exhibit, one can find
triangular boxes made of colored,
ruffled cardboard, connected to each
other with ribbon that runs along the
edge of one box, through a hole near
the corner, and around the edge of{
another box.
There are also elaborately designed
cloths, used in Japan to wrap and
carry objects.
To celebrate the exhibit, Art
History Prof. Paul Berry will present
a lecture, "Wrapped, Bagged, and
Sold - Contemporary Japanese
Packaging," in the Art and
Architecture Lecture Hall at 7 p.m.,
Monday. A reception will follow in
the Slusser Gallery.
