The Pacific Ocean has already received around 800 tons of radioactive material from the explosion at the Fukushima nuclear plant, under the silence of the media.
If the soul is a flame, how many candles should light up the oceans where nuclear waste is killing all living creatures?
„There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,
In the cold grave – under the deep deep sea.“
These words by Thomas Hood are read by Shiri Malckin, over and over again, in her musical piece „Underwater Desert“ which forms the soundtrack of the video.
