“Don’t Follow the Wind”: art installations inside Fukushima radioactive zone

Fukushima art installation

The Creators Project heads to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster zone to get an exclusive look at Japanese art collective, Chim↑Pom’s latest project “Don’t Follow The Wind.” This group of installations feature the work of various artists and are housed by four buildings inside the exclusion zone, serving as a monument to the disaster and its ongoing consequences. We sit down with Ryuta Ushiro and Ellie of Chim↑Pom, as well as featured artists Ai WeiWei, Trevor Paglen, and Eva and Franco Mattes to chat about how and why building this installation inside the radioactive space was essential in communicating the devastating impact of the disaster.
