Digitally unaltered images of night light upon and in the Sakai, Onda, and Tama rivers, the Nikaryo Yosui Canal, and neighborhood drainage ditches in Tokyo, Japan. These are urban waters, enclosed, contained, yet for me an expansive and expressive field of movement at night. Since 2015, I have lived next to these waters for some months each year, walking along them. They are ordinary, and such ordinary places deserve attention. They can teach us about looking, liveliness and the spirited movement of things that surround us.
