'Pulse Tokyo' is an art photography exhibition where I exhibited analogue photographs of my Japan stay 2010-2011.
Personally I am interested in the perception of a place. So as a conceptual approach of my selection of photographs I questioned the feeling of uplift or 'pulse' in this city and was curious, whether people, no matter whether they visited Tokyo before or not, will feel similar emotions or do remembering moments when they encounter the photos. What does my view/experience of Tokyo share with others?
The large sized (30×45cm) analogue black and white photos are composed in the galleries main space. One wall is reserved for the cloud called “Interlude”. This composition of different digital cell phone photos show documentary footage of instant daily moments. Images that are more intuitively taken like food , skies, , that are more emotionally engaged but which motives might be more fading than the analogue black/white images (we can compare this now to instagram photo sharing for example). Detailed observers will find situational links and references to the analogue photos to imagine small associative stories.
