Now the capital city of Tokyo is densely packed with buildings both big and small. In the skyline, we can see the scale and complexity of this. As people live their lives in this space, individual happiness, suffering, and hope all melt into the scenery. I have attempted to project this onto the skyline. This strained and distorted visage conveys an atmosphere of anxiety and intimidation that expands one’s worldview as if from another dimension. This previously unfelt sensation creates an aesthetic space and confers an illusion of safety.
