Oscillon  "the city walker"

- city footwear concept -

Born and raised in the city of Tokyo, and currently living in the NYC, 

big cites has always given me inspirations and creative perspective

 

I close my eyes and stand still in the middle of a city, I hear/ see /feel

the wave of sounds/color/smell  

In this project, I aimed to explore the dynamics of the cities

by visually transforming it to a city footwear concept ​"Oscillon"
