RoadTrip: The Last Tourist in China
Artist Jan Rothuizen travelled the Chinese cities of the Pearl River Delta. An urban conglomeration only slightly larger than the Dutch randstad which -if its growth rate continues- becomes a mega polis of 36 million in only 15 years.
‘The last Tourist’ is an online passage along hand drawn maps, texts and photographs. This website provides a personal reading of the cities that write themselves. To walk in a city without a set destination is relatively new. It was only in the twenties of the last century that the flaneur emerged, a modern day man who went drifting trough the cities that appeared.
