Olympics Sites of Tokyo 3.0: A Sensory Archive of Displacement
February 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
A sensory archive reveals the urban development history and the lived experience of the demolition and displacement of the Tokyo Olympics. Mapping Tokyo Olympics 3.0 uses hybrid spatial and sensory ethnography and intermedial approaches to collaboratively map the imperial (1940), high-growth (1964) and post-growth (2020) Tokyo Olympics to uncover their layers of time, history, materiality and the digital city-image.
