Port Island - Anonymous Creations in Small Island
I am scanning scenery of a mechanical-sounding PORT ISLAND.
It is the artificial island which was developed to enlarge Kobe sandwiched
between Mt. ROKKO and the sea to the south.
Landfill began in 1966 with soil of the Mt. ROKKO for the period of the high
growth of economy. The unfinished metropolis which was exposed to the many
big waves called a bubble burst, slump of the economy and an unprecedented
big earthquake disaster to happen in 1995.
An advanced scientific research institute, garbage incineration plants stand
orderly disorderly. The harbor facilities, a house, a company, a university, a used
car market, a medical institution form groups and are like building exhibit space
totally cheaply built.
In the small island where the quiet increase without the goal still continues.
