Embracing the concept of hybrid, W+K Tokyo Lab has been experimenting with new forms of creative expression to bring new experiences that can only be created in Tokyo. To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we released our 10th release, a hybrid package including a DVD+Book+Blog.

Tokyo.Ten is a project set up so that W+K Tokyo Lab, in collaboration with all the artists with whom we have collaborated in the 5 years since our launch, can express a range of “points” (点 in Japanese) relating to Tokyo. A point is a moment in time, a dot, a location, and a reason for doing something. What’s the point or mark that makes Tokyo different? A point of view, a physical location, a point or moment in time. What do you think of when you think of Tokyo? What makes Tokyo special?

DVD (70 min)
A best of selection of our music videos made through the collaboration of W+K Tokyo Lab and our artists over the years, the DVD contains 20 works. The DVD includes Maledict Car, a new single by new artist Jemapur and visual creator Kosai Sekine, and Hill, a visual masterpiece by Takagi Masakatsu available on DVD for the first time.

BOOK (256 pages)
The art book contains visual remixes of our 9 previously released albums in addition to new artworks by 42 artists from around the world with whom we have collaborated. Each artwork is a free expression of their visual points toward Japanese culture and Tokyo power. On the blog, users could see the participating artists’ inspirations and works-in-progress, deepening the experience provided by the book.
