3.11

Response to the massive destruction 2011
 

This project was made as my response to The Japan Tohoku Region Pacific Coast Earthquake in 2011. The project consists of two parts: first, a collection of digitally printed apparel fabrics reflecting the chaotic scenery in the aftermath following the earthquake, second, a group of silkscreen printed fabrics investigating my own feelings about the use of nuclear power in Japan.

For the collection of digitally printed fabrics, I focused on the people’s reaction to the earthquake. esilience of the Japanese people in the face of a massive natural disaster gave me a sense of hope. I wanted to encapsulate the moments of the people’s collective work efforts to reconstruct their lives.

In the group of silkscreen printed fabrics, I was responding to the destruction of Fukushima Nuclear Power plant. The accident triggered me to be more aware of the complications and risks of using nuclear power. The summer following the accident, I visited Hiroshima, Nagasaki and the Genkai nuclear power plant in Saga, Japan, to understand the history of the relationship between Japan and the use nuclear power. In producing these silk screens and conducting my own research, I came to the conclusion that I am against the nuclear power and want to encase this viewpoint in less aggressive and more personal frame, trying to bring out the issue of risking such a precious land and people.
