Noda photographs his surroundings to record personal experiences at a specific time and place, creating a visual diary. Here, he emphasized the monotonous quality of this inhospitable urban scene, devoid of figures, by printing the image from a woodblock on a solid white background. The result is a generalized, rather than personal, evocation of memory that underscores the dehumanized nature of modern life.
Diary: March 5th '87, at 2-12-4 Kikkodai Kashiwashi (a)
