In the snowy landscapes of the heights of Fukushima, I have captured the
invisible pain of radiation. Inspired by the drawings of Japanese engravings, I hoped to capture the fleeting moments, the ever-shifting perceptions of nature, where radiation accumulates the most.
The title is the measure of contamination of landscapes in becquerel (Bq), a unit that expresses atom disintegration and its mutation's number per second.
By a process of staggered superimpression, I intended to show the atom’s alteration in my pictures. The transparency effects, the broken perspectives give rise to a shape that is in motion, an impermanent world.
Then, I created a vibration, a departure from the reality of the subject that reveals the presence of radiation in the image.
