In the original poster collage I brought to paper my, so i thought, personal clear image of a culture I barely knew. After more and more revisits to this country I tried to fit in more pieces but found that the more I knew the less it seemed to make sense to me. This moment from changing between superficial impressions of Japan to a more honest one reminded me of Osaka’s neon lights. When you look down a street you can capture the whole atmosphere. But when you focus on one specific light, try to read the sign, watch who enters or leaves, you start to truly try to understand the culture.
