Study 001 – London, Amsterdam and Tokyo

The first study in this long term research programme focussed on observing and identifying socio-techno styles at ‘urban catwalks’. By critically analysing the ways people carry and use mobile technology combined with the way they dress and carry accessories, clusters with similar socio-techno styles could be identified.

Observations in Akihabara, Tokyo (spring 2008)

To further explore ways to document people using portable technology on the ‘urban catwalk’, we experimented with making series of panoramic stills across public crossings in Akihabara, Tokyo.

Observations in Ginza, Tokyo (winter 2007)

As a first exploration into how to collect visual material on styles/appearances in public space, we experimented with taking pictures of people crossing the streets in Ginza, Tokyo.
