"Pasajero" is the Spanish word for “passenger”, but it also means fleeting or ephemeral. This double meaning is embodied in a random journey in Tokyo through the world’s largest rail system, 2,300 km of railway, 136 lines and more than 1,000 stations flooded daily with a huge stream of about 20 million passengers.

Pasajero proposes a visual journey that opens up an intimate window into a fascinating underlying reality concealed in silence. The project emphasizes blank spaces, the ephemeral experience of life and its melancholic sense of beauty. The video installation, supplied with short sequences and sounds of Tokyo railway, enhance the visual experience.
