Some Questions about Nuclear


The Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011 and the subsequent nuclear power plant accident left a great deal of damage and deep wounds on the hearts of the Japanese. Especially with regard to the issue of nuclear power, it made us aware of the fundamental question, “Who does information belong to?”
Despite criticism of incomplete information disclosure starting from the beginning of the accident, the Japanese government seemed unwilling to disclose information that citizens should know.
However, almost 11 years after the accident, despite the fact that there are still more than 67,000 evacuees (as of January 2021) and the continuing problem of contaminated water, the memory of this accident is disappearing from the minds of many people.
This project begins with the questions of what to do and what can be done about the highly scientific, economic, political, and social issues related to nuclear power—not only as an artist but also as a citizen.
This work consists of two media: “Map for inspection of radioactive substances in food in Japan” (completely revised in March 2021) and “Video interviews in Asia including Japan”.
