You cannot feel alone in Tokyo. Sound is everywhere: voice recordings in and outside trains, toilets, the beep-beep at stops, huge visual and vocal commercials on buildings, crowds, gigs in the street, cars, laughter, trains, the slurping of noodle soups, the ka-ching of machines, people greeting whenever you enter or leave somewhere.
Public space is not a clear geometrical shape, like a square or piazza in Europe, but rather a 3D experience that takes your eyes over, below, then across and around the street and its buildings.
Everything is movement. Continuous flow. Tokyo is a city where space expands and unfolds as if you’re looking through a wide-angle lens. Each time you twist or turn, you get another perspective and you are standing in the middle of it all, wondering in and out of the picture as you please.
