Sketchbook notes from the drifting spaces

Journey skywards – Tokyo Skytree and Umihotaru Sea Station

shikishi skytree

grey-white-grey no rust steady waymarker
visitor blanketed platforms contained
taiyaki and colonel saunders ready for christmas
deep blue negatives and folding darknesses
drawing looking up straining higher
shards segmented triangulated steel glass
black flashing yellow next to grey shadows

smooth time tarmac slowed right down
drifting wheels spinning units glittering objects
acceleration past watchtowers over winding flyovers
tunnelling again now under tokyo bay
faded warm glow suffuses this slow motion escalator
sudden cold light interwoven dynamics
ground and sky merged earth wide open
