Chapter 1 – Where is Place?

How do we engage with the spaces we are in? And how much are we a product of our spaces as much as we contribute to it? How do we do justice in documenting this?

 Chapter 2 – Diptychs – How We Organize Ourselves Within the Urban Space

Our relationship to our greater environment. Documents make tangible the power of the rote moments of the everyday. The frames of smallness as a testament to our agency.

Chapter 3 – Tall City

We are enveloped by the deep blues of the streets. The orange glow of the late night walls guide us as we twist and turn through the night. We go home, We go out, We are here greeted by the tall city.

 Chapter 4 – Exploring the Garden City

 The green of Tokyo betrays the image of of what the west only ever imagine cities as – concrete jungles. The red from the shrines work in unison with the green to frame a vibrant city. It lends itself to walking.

 Chapter 5 – One Day

 A woman stares at a man. A fresh ember glows on the end of a cigarette that sits at the end of an arm on an armrest. The man stares off, away from the smoke-filled dining area out through the thick plastic veil onto the cold wet street.
