What Edo Japan Would Look Like If People Had Computers

Japanese video artist Atsuki Segawa is back with some more Ukiyo-e 2.0—traditional Japanese woodblock prints transformed into a series of animated gifs. According to Segawa: “The brief was to bring out the fun side of technology, and show what people’s lifestyles would have looked like back then if they’d had computers and tablets to play around with.” Segawa started the project in December 2015 and has made five gifs so far. He has five more to go until the project’s completion. You can see his last series here.
