Wirescapes, connected with the urban fabric

Mixed-media Exhibition
11 – 20  November 2022
UNTITLED Space, Tokyo.

Everything starts from the power plug of the UNTITLED Space gallery — the energy source and the starting point of the journey through electric cables connecting urban photographic views. 

Wirescapes is a mixed-media exhibition that uses the space as a canvas to visualize the complexity of hyper-connected city life. The installation combines urban photographs and recycled technological materials, showcasing creative ways of mingling and mixing different disciplines. 

While people often crave solitude and calmness in a large metropolis, Wirescapes demonstrates how a linked city helps us to discover new perspectives, leave a positive mark, or even make a new connection that will inspire others. 

In our entwined world, just one small change will have a ripple effect on the city fabric, amplifying the power of individual decisions. If our actions foster a sustainable and ethical lifestyle, they will impact a larger community and, consequently, a more significant part of the city.

Wirescapes is the result of an unexpected and singular connection that, ironically, would only happen in a large urban context. Two eccentric personalities — the Italian architect with a passion for recycling and the Georgian software engineer with a love for photography — crossed each other’s paths during a sakura-viewing in the heart of the 37-million-people city. 

We believe in random connections because “you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward.” 


Every dot is the start for a new connection.



About ByLUDO

ByLUDO is a brand of recycled technological waste founded by Ludovica Cirillo in Rome, in 2008.

 Her inspiration came from the desire to use her hands to invent things and her first source was a drawer full of pieces of earphones, electric cables or obsolete keyboards from personal computers. These pieces came to have a second life: first of all being useful, then in disuse, they become ornamental and artistic objects. This is why her designs take their creative inspiration from the environmental practice of reuse, a concept particularly important in today’s wasteful consumerist society.

At 16 years old for the first edition of the TNT exhibition organised by the Italian Ministry of Youth, Ludovica was selected amongst the first 200 Italian talents. After her work was showcased in a series of exhibitions in Rome, London, Madrid, Frankfurt, Paris and Tel Aviv. (for full exhibition list please visit: https: //www.byludo.com/about/)

Since Ludovica moved to Japan and started working at Kengo Kuma and Associates, Tokyo, she had the chance to deeply explore Japanese culture and its ancient history of craftsmanship. Inspired by the leftovers of her previous exhibitions and by the creative environment of Tokyo, she decided to expand the application of her materials to create artistic installations.

About Toto Tvalavadze

Toto is a Tokyo-based Georgian photographer and independent photo bookmaker. He is focused on small-scale projects about life in the city and how the sprawling urban environment influences its occupants.

Toto’s love of large cities, particularly Tokyo, started after he discovered the meditative power of a big walk. As a photographer, having a camera at all times during those walks was a natural advancement. Today, Toto does 15-20km walks with a camera in and around Tokyo every Saturday morning, capturing all kinds of sceneries in the city that extends to the horizon. You can learn about his long walks by subscribing to his newsletter — The Flâneur — at totocater.com/newsletter

Out of Memory is a long-term series of bi-annual photo magazines documenting his presence, feelings, and sights experienced in Tokyo and elsewhere. Out of Memory started in 2019 and is still an ongoing project.

While social networks such as Instagram are great tools to connect, tell stories and share the creative process, Toto firmly believes that the final form of the photographic project is a book, exhibition, or a tangible installation.
