wish you were here.
A voyage of a flâneuse and a flâneur in Japan.
Experiment 3 is directed to flâneuses and flâneurs. It encourages the spirit of wonder, eccentric role-play and the constant observation of society. These characters are not just street strollers but they become important participants in society. They are the painter and at the same time the painting.
