The Story

Tokyo Nude confronts the ever-changing outlines of the metropolis. As we discard the garments of civilization, is this dystopia or utopia?

Tokyo exists in a state of continuous renewal. The crowded buildings almost feel like forms deeply rooted forms, cemented into the city's fabric. Living in Tokyo, I exist symbiotically with these rigid forms. Conversely, the sense of community between people seems to be shifting into places unseen in public; mainly the Internet. Virtual connections have become more important than physical relationships with neighbors, thus shifting the historic ideals of "real life."

The outlines of Tokyo have become blurred. These works deal with my wonder for what this metropolis will look like when we no longer desire material functions. There are no entrances, no exits; a world filled with rectangular structures working their way into the horizon. All activity happens within the structures, and traces of consumption disappear from public view; a discarding of civilization's ideals, the garments and decorations.
