Schmidt’s Tokyo is a tangle of electrical wires, tall
buildings, and telephone poles. It’s the view you’d see if you looked up from the street to the sky, contemplating the public systems that make
technology possible. The exhibition also features the view you’d see
underground, on the notoriously crowded metro, where bleary-eyed office workers
scroll through their phones and overworked salarymen slump, half-asleep,
against train car walls.
