Confessions of a Mask
I get a sense of discomfort every time I get back to Tokyo from a trip abroad. I feel it from the silent and cold impersonal impression of the abnormally clean streets that seem to cover up something lying underneath.
It seems as though the landscape is immune to the dire influences of chaos and decadence from severe earthquake and environmental pollution. I am in no doubt that this feeling of discomfort has grown since Fukushima nuclear power station accident.
I am making a document of the Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans.
