Purpose of the residency

I am joining the TOKAS residency to develop and finish a project I began in 2018 about the Shinjuku Station in Tokyo. I will photograph, sound record, and scan the station area and seek out knowledgeable people on the subject. I plan to do some historic and cultural research about the station and how it has developed since its opening in 1885. Additionally, I will trace the station's current and historical physical scope by walking and drawing maps, inspired by the Street Observation Society of the 1980s.

Plan during the residency
  • Document Shinjuku Station and surroundings through photographs, sound, etc.
  • Interview people (architects, researchers, artists, etc.)
  • Visit local libraries, museums, etc.
  • Walk the streets and tunnels of Shinjuku
  • Draw maps
