[ISEA2015] Artists Statement: Kyriaki Goni & Theodoros Papatheodorou – RADIO NIPPON

Artists Statement

Interactive Installation (2013)

In Radio Nippon, 652 Geiger counters all over Japan are used to create an audio map that plays the level of radioactivity at these sites. Of particular note is the area of Fukushima, in central Japan, still exhibiting dangerous levels of radiation. The data are generated by official government counters, amidst strong indications from the public that they misrepresent the true magnitude of the disaster.
