January - March 2004 in London, UK

As a foreigner living in London. I sometimes felt homesick, not for my actual hometown, Osaka, but for my adopted home, Berlin. In London, I thought about all the people I have ever known -in Berlin, Osaka, and in my travels. I collected pigions feathers on the road, and attached a tag which I sewed the name of the hometown where the people were born, then tided with thread the feather and the placec on the map.
