city butterflies

Nagoya, Japan 2011

Photographs by Eiji Watanabe

As part of a collaboration with the Japanese artist
Eiji Watanabe, last year I installed a series of butterfly
names in a former kimono shop in downtown Nagoya.
The shop was recently occupied by a local politician
as a base to launch his (successful) mayoral election
campaign. The butterflies still hovered, in a more
politically charged space.
