A sound installation made by Yuji Dogane. The work is constructed through a system called “Plantron”. ”Plantron” is a system that converts imperceptive biological information / electrical changes of plants to "sounds".
As the title says, the area around the plants is slightly “radioactive”. This is an artistic metaphor to the Fukushima Incident of 3.11 in Japan and to the humain being that created such a "monster machine", nuclear.
"…On the other hand, the trees planted on the area of the Fukushima-daiichi nuclear plant are still standing there after that incident. They also are sounding their "voices", too. What kind of outcries are they making?
I suppose we would never build things like nuclear plants if we were sensitive enough to listen to the voices of lives including the plants standing around us.
I believe the change of sensibilities of humans leads us to fundamental solution of the disasters like this.”
