Last Year in New York

Installations of View, Koganecho Bazaar, Yokohama, Japan


In Yokohama I would like to compare this city with New York rather than Chengdu, and it seems that memories of New York City were getting much closer to contemporary reality, and it reminded me that I was once a speechless person and had very weak link with society at the beginning. Now Mass medias are occupying many people’s private/public spaces, but face-to-face communication is more interesting, and I suppose the first-hand experience is more important. It is the start point of my work.

My cooperator, Professor Ling, tried to simulate an abstract localization landscape about individual communication, whereas one person try to influence another person, and gradually generate a society order. If he / she is a weak link in the social relationship, it will be out of tune. Based on local information, we would like to disclose some possible dynamic structure In Koganecho.
