TOKYO DISCO TIME
Metro Arts, Brisbane, QLD, 13 - 18 May 2016
Bright flashing lights, loud sounds, music and crowds of people. The experience of disco and of Tokyo. Travelling around Tokyo at night, from the chaos of Shibuya crossing, the shiny excitement of Kababukicho, crazy street fashion, karaoke, the game arcades and pachinko parlors, to the chimes and noises in the train stations and at street crossings. It is sensory overload. My artworks reflect all these things as seen through my disco eyes. It is a Tokyo take on disco. Using video, photos, installation and costume I have explored the city in my artworks while also incorporating my obsession with the aesthetics of disco in the 1970's.
