Such ecological imaginings of the city are prescient in that these ideas of the city as a network, ideas with a sense of a life-giving and transforming essence, were barely thought about in the 1960s. This is a good example of Katō’s belief in the power of ritual practice to create forms of symbolic union. In a 2007 interview held in Tokyo during a time when Katō was showing the White Rabbit film as a revival at various small cinemas and galleries, he spoke about performance as giving off a sense of sexual energy.
