Project Japan 2019 – Dotted line


Collecting trace material inside the Atelier Outotsu building was easy.  When we (me and Paul, my trusty helper) embarked on the rest of the journey in the evening (when it was a little cooler), it got a bit more complicated. In hindsight working in the dark was probably a bad idea – possibly arousing suspicion.

Our dotted line had reached Kusugawa station when the police arrived. It was quite an entourage; cars, motorcycles, 6 immaculately dressed policemen (with guns). The language barrier made it quite a tricky situation to deal with, I was ordered to remove the latex and told not to do this anywhere in Japan. I’m sorry we didn’t get further, the floor surfaces are varied on this short walk and there are so many interesting man-hole covers.
