A first impression
A space as physical manifestation of a greeting to the outside
To the other
The non-Japanese.
The evolution of a Japanese greeting
The 19th century greeting by canon
11 islands – canon batteries prepared Japan
Mid 20th century greeting
A purging of old habits, removal of batteries cleared way for new greetings

International ships greeted in Port of Tokyo.
Land greets the sea
Fish from sea to land
Greeting that which the sea brings commercial ships
humans flock to sea
Greeting took on a different face
outward facing
Inviting and promoting
Facade.
Tokyo Teleport Town
A world of commerce greeted with reflection,
augmentation of itself
ostentatious displays.

The sea greets land
Involuntarily
Sea on land.
Solidified sea of waste
Toxic waste
Toxic foundation
Measured toxicity provides unsuitable findings
Foundation must be found
Measured toxicity changed
Unfounded.

Battery 6 left to nature
Human activities left to nature
nature buffering
No nature left
towers right left
nature locked in

Impression not considered.
The buffer has loaded
Nature towers up taller than human towers
Tower of water rolls in to greet human construction
water rolls in.
Water has rolled in
interwoven carpet of nature rolled out over human construction
A new foundation
No impressions considered
Water is unimpressionable.
