Tokyo represent the urban future for Birke, whose aim is to create a preview of our urban life in the future. Birke's world is one of neon signs, public video screens, rooftops and concrete. He is fascinated by density and the traces of people--lluminated windows of their apartments, the light streaks of their vehicles or their clothes hung out of windows for drying.
