Keitai Tokyo is a miniature memento of Tokyo. It was shot entirely on an au brand cell phone, which creates low-res, small video files for sending and viewing on cell phones. Keitai means ‘portable’ and is Japanese slang for ‘cell phone’. This is my portable memory of Tokyo, rendered with an economy of pixels and iconic images. Keitai Tokyo is a “little world” constructed from cliché images that tourists to Tokyo take away with them, combined with my personal memories of living in Tokyo as a teenager: constant rain and commuter trains.
