Nihongo de Vimeo

The distance between two cities shortens in time. In this experimental music video, it is the lone heart of America and the celestial shores of Japan. Where we live and places we dream about are not so different. The prosthetic potential for achieving destiny presents a sigh of relief and caution. With such haptic interfaces and tools at our disposal, even the most rustic visions of places away become concrete. Tokyo, I'm coming home.

Origin is Oklahoma City, USA. On a Dance Dance Revolution arcade kiosk. Destination is Akihabara Station in Tokyo, Japan. In the walls of Google Maps (iOS) and online social media Blue Mars Lite. Animation, video, editing, performance, graphics, and original music by Benjamin Poynter. Lyrics ghost written by Walter Benjamin. 2013.
