Lepeltje Lepeltje (spooning)

Spooning is an intervention which occurred on the streets of Tokyo between 2-6 am during the hours where the subway stops running.  Due to local customs, it is considered more honorable to sleep on the street than to return home drunk or past hours.  In the wee hours the streets of Tokyo are filled with business men, in pressed suits, gucci briefcases and polished shoes at their sides, on a small piece of cardboard catching a nights sleep.

 

Spooning occurs when a stranger creates an intimacy- offering a moment of comfort-unbeknownst to the sleeping figure.
