Lost highway
Project info

The access of the deserted roads across the 20km exclusion zone around the Fukushima’s nuclear plant is forbidden. Here, inspiring myself from the ready-made artwork, I sought to test the bounds of photography by using Google Street View images taken after the accident as an artistic material.
As in traditional Japanese engravings, I chose to arrange the panels to recompose these landscapes in order to emphasize the feeling of disorientation. I also decomposed perspectives, lines and angles and created a vibration to make the presence of radiation perceptible.
