In Tokyo Untitled D'Agostin isolates himself in the geometries of the Japanese city. He narrates his journey through his experience of the street, describing with the language of abstract images, charged of deep blacks and sharp edges. Dislocating subjects from their realities, D'Agostin depicts his perception of the space around him, the relationship between the city's architecture and its people, and their interferences. This is emphasized in Tokyo, according to D'Agostin, where he has no reference or connection with the external world, and his sense of disconnection brings him to a discovery of the unseen.
