"Farewell My Tokyo" is a unique series of framed artistic images that capture the incredible city's essence. Each is designed to remind us of the colorful street signs, cozy neighborhoods, skylines, modern architecture, and history of the city, which result is a fusion of contemporary and traditional Japanese culture.
The pieces are hand-made using Pachica, a special paper that becomes transparent when heated. The subtle black outlines on the transparent areas of the craftwork express the nostalgia of Tokyo. Each individual piece is crafted with skillful control of temperature, pressure, and time during pressing.
