Hinomaru | Shinjuku, Tokyo | 2012




The red lamp on the side of a wall resembles the red spot on a white background that symbolizes the rising sun of the Japanese 'Hino Maru' national flag. A flag is the ultimate symbol of a country. My intention with this photo is to create a metaphor for the ideas of a nation-state being a construct, just as a building is a construct.

The architecture of meaning.
