29 Not-Quite-Random Walks Around Tokyo

PRESENTED ON OCT 04, 2013
IN COVENTRY @ VOL 15

Nikki Pugh was an exchange student near Tokyo and was shocked by how people in Japan give directions. They draw maps using the train station as the starting point. This gave her the idea to collect postcards with maps on them, cut out all of the text, and then go on an adventure to discover what those places were. She did this at each of the 29 stations along the Yamanote train line.

APPLAUD THIS!

MAP: Art, Architecture and Being Social

BY BILLY GRUNER
@ VOL 9 ON FEB 28, 2014

Last year, Billy Gruner began an exhibition project with some friends called Modern Art Projects (MAP). The exhibitions were placed in simple domestic environments, exploring the radical architectural design of the 1950s and 60s. This idea evolved into exhibtions held in sometimes little-known architectural treasures around the area, with performance art pieces and more.
