One can feel a tremendous power coming from Tokyo which is similar to the vitality of plants. Perhaps this is because the city, just like plants, is alive and growing. By using tiger rope which is symbolic of construction sites, I tried to express the dynamic “will to live” that is found in both the city and in nature.
