We're all in a hurry and don't think anymore. Do we see
what's happening around us? When do we stop? It seems
we're only concerned with reaching our destination. With
all the haste we don't read words per letter, but words in
its entirety. It doesn't matter in what order the letters are in
a word, as long as the first and the last letters are in the
These quotes reflect on how I experience and feel the
surrounding at the station, how I travel and experience the
big crowd. Did you stop your travel for a minute and took
the time to read the quotes? Take this rest before you travel

I, Salarymen — 私、サラリーマン
Look around you, what is the most natural thing for you
in Tokyo? We are all busy with time and rushing from one
place to another, to achieve the best version of ourselves.
We designed our environment, but how to develop more?

What is a city then?
Are we all a Salaryman? What if you do not speak the
language in this country, and you want to work as a
Salaryman? After following a Salarymen for a day to find
out what a day contained for them, I wanted to compare

Enter the fourth dimension
The string theory about the 4th dimension and other
proposals require more than three space dimensions.
These extra dimensions could be very small, which is
why we do not see them.
If I have to add design in the third dimension I have to
consider weight, pressure, resistance, rotations,
movement and multiply, as distinguished from motion,
to arrive at what may legitimately called design in the
fourth dimension, or the harmonic use of what may be
called arbitrarily volume. Will this utopian universe in
the 4th dimension ever visible to us, with lines that
visually extend to another dimension?
