The Intersection

Using an accordion style binding of her own invention, The Intersection documents a cycle of a street light in Tokyo. Matsunaga took a picture every seven seconds to capture the way people hurry past without noticing one another. The pictures are printed on transparent Japanese paper allowing the past, present and the future to bleed into one another. Faceless people represent how in memories “you usually forget the people who passed by on the road” (Matsunaga 2016). Every person in these pictures has his or her own unique memory from this intersection but no one will remember one another.
