On March, 11 2011, a violent earthquake shakes Japan, followed by the tsunami responsible for the Fukushima nuclear disaster. This horrid events and the tsunami's progress in particular were covered live since 8 A.M on French television and worldwide.
Tornadoes of banners, animations and footage of buildings swept away... Was it information or sensation? One can wonder. But the result was the same, a complete trauma. This graphic object is meant to be as striking as these footage; a pure visual experience.
First, a wave, made of torn pictures of Japanese cities and newspaper articles from this period. Then, a long gradient from a dark blue to a pure white. A reflux, bringing back silence and emptiness.
