About the event

Among the feelings that invaded me in the few days after the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima accident, not only was there sadness, unease and fear, there was also hope.
Surely such an unprecedented event would prove the first step for us to rise up as a society and realize changes that otherwise would be too difficult to make. That’s how I felt at that time.
I wanted to portray the relationship between the living and the spirits who have met their deaths in these circumstances full of hope for the future. The lives of the dead have already completed their cycle and stabilized. We who continue to live envy them. We are tormented; we want to escape from there, forever trying to forget.
