A poetic act of radical caring to mark the 10th anniversary of the 311 Fukushima Disaster.

American artists in collaboration with Japanese artists, developed a virtual process to engage with young adults in the Tohoku region when it was not safe to travel. Using a trusted relational network, they recorded stories about safety, strength, and hopes for the future. From these recorded voices, the artists have created voice sonic haiku that is amplified through a trio of interactive, mobile sound monuments in the shape of tsunami stones.

Prior to the exhibition at the Setagaya Art Museum in July, we will install sound monuments in the I-House garden. Please reserve your preferred time slot to avoid crowds.

Learn more about the project from the website.
