Tokyo can be defined in many ways: tentacular, chaotic, crowded… It can be lived in many ways: quickly, with fear or with hope. Tokyo gives us the opportunity to experience the city, exactly as we want. With this project, I wanted to find a different Tokyo, hidden to the mind but not to the eye. A city with a parallel existence, but that does not really exist. A virtual place that faces every corner of our lives. A reflected city. It’s reflected in walls and streets, in objects and windows, that opens the mind to a new vision of familiar places, now distorted, with new perspectives. Welcome to a new city, which is Tokyo but that, at the same time, it’s not. That is not real, or maybe it is.
