Two short videos

As a follow-up to my previous post, I thought I’d post a couple videos that relate to both transit and density.  The first one was taken while walking through Shibuya on a Friday night at 11:55 – exactly five minutes before the last train out of Tokyo departed.  I was in a rush to catch the train, as was seemingly every other person in the neighborhood!  It was quite a sight.  I shot the second video while riding the Nozomi (lit. “hope” or “wish”) Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto (en route to Nara) in June.  It gives you a good idea of just how fast the Shinkanesen goes as well as what a typical Japanese landscape looks like.  Enjoy!

  1. This reminds me so much of John Gerrard’s computer game-based video art. You should send this to him.It is amazing!!
