Here's the writeup for the event:
"The first time I visited Tokyo, I felt like I was walking through a dream. Ephemeral humanity surged past me Ė each dark figure impassive, scurrying, hurtling towards an unknown destination amidst an oddly placed silence. When I turned a corner, I met groups of school girls in uniforms interwoven among fashionistas, chattering. Their words lifted me because previously I didnít hear any, and though I donít understand, the effect is comforting.
This surreal mix of human silence and chatter found a delicate balance in my heart. I felt liberated because somehow, it made sense. Throughout my journey, I reveled in every fleeting, dreamlike, whimsical scene that presented itself to me on the streets. For example, I found tranquility interstitially waiting for me in the gardens. In a country which has seen much tragedy and violence, I found peace and healing in Tokyo dreaming."
