[Tokio 2012]

Okina kutsu

In Tokyo, the businessmen, the geisha girls and the fashion commandos all wear big shoes. A big shoe is usually worn three sizes too big. A leather shoe is mandatory for men, women have more choices.

The urban organism of Tokyo has reached it’s maximum size. It's individual parts are taking on their own patterns of development, at different paces, and different scales.

There is a constant and fluid internal reorganization taking place. Gradually, the car doesn’t fit into the garage, the man through the door. Even the size of man, which used to be the point of reference –holding it all together – is changing. The modular man has become an individual; and while his size increases, the standards of the city dissolve.

Traveling with a subtle ease through the ever-changing dynamics of the city, he claims more personal space.

With the three inches between his heel and the backside of his shoe, he anticipates personal growth to come.

This project was made during the Still City Tokyo workshop, initiated by studio Monnik.
