“This is our last intervention “Radioactive Control”. It was created for the Dockville Festival in Hamburg which tried to demonstrate, in a humorous tone, the paranoia that we are suffering from since the escape of radioactive material in Japan, has brought into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants.
With our mysterious army of 100 illuminated radioactive figures, which advanced threateningly on the natural environment of the festival, we wanted to invite reflection regarding the use and abuse of nuclear energy, cheap in economic terms, but which can cause grave secondary effects for the environment and health, forever irreversible.”
Architect Yasutaka Yoshimura started a project “EX-CONTAINER PROJECT“. It converts shipping containers into houses to help those who were hit by the earthquake in Japan. The advantage of this project is that almost all the production process is done outside Japan, so it is less expensive, and also easier to ship as it is originally a shipping container. They are asking for donations for this project.
