The work of Sashie Masakatsu presents surreal images of spherical cities, which float planet-like over an urban wasteland. Architectural details make these spheres recognizably Japanese, a metaphor for Tokyo itself, the largest metropolitan area in the world. But Tokyo also represents the ideal of a utopian metropolis, a failed dream replaced by social isolation and environmental degradation.
