In the interactive installation Radio Nippon, 652 Geiger counters all over Japan are being used to create a radioactivity audio map. These real time readings from each counter are transformed into sine waves which become audible when the user moves the tuner over the respective counter coordinates. Of particular note is the area of Fukushima, in central Japan, still exhibiting dangerous levels of radiation. These data are being collected by official government counters and there are strong indications amongst the public that they misrepresent the true magnitude of the disaster.
The installation was presented in Athens Video/Art Festival 2013
