“Stefan”

I became friends with Stefan during my time living in Azabu-jūban. Everyday he stared through the window into my living room and I watched him being energized.
Because of the many earthquakes he was worried if he could stand his job without breaking down and bury or worse electrify someone underneath him. I didn’t know what to say,
so I portrayedt him. Ganbarimasu, Stefan-san!


“Mathias”

After a while Stefan introduced me to his friend Mathias, living just next roof. A little bit envious about his newly constructed neighbour Roppongi Hills – so shiny and so much glass and art – he tried hard to keep salaryman working below him cool. As a side effect he also heated up his surrounding because of the waste heat he was producing. Other high skyscrapers blocking the fresh breeze from Tokyo Bay made him even work harder to get his job done. I didn’t know what to say, so I portrayed him. Ganbarimasu, Mathias-san!
