City Study 
– Nature and humans –

Just as every city has its own history, it has its own shape. As people gather, start to live, and expand the scope of their activities, towns gradually change their appearance.

While for the “hecomi studies” my height determines the way I work, in my city studies the viewpoint is set far up high in the sky. When I look at the city from a bird’s eye view, I see the breadth of human activities, which can be said to have formed a hecomi in the middle of nature. The work documents the constant struggle between green (nature) and the city, but at times also organic forms of kindness to each other as well as the dynamism of the rivers running through the city, the shapes that reflect the geography – history of the city itself.
