Nakano in Spring (中野の春)

pencil, digital
2009

This panoramic is set outside the train station at Nakano in Tokyo. It describes a mysterious magical occurrence one fateful spring day, as a mysterious sakura tree erupts in the middle of the bus depot! As with many of our panoramics we are always tickled by odd and magical occurrences going mostly unnoticed by city dwellers. Some of them almost think they see something, a flash at the corner of their peripheral vision, a weird momentary wash of color in the sky, but then its gone again...

The work debuted as a 10 foot wide print at the Giant Robot Biennale at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles on October 24th, 2009.
