At the occasion of the Reborn Art Festival on the Ishinomaki peninsula (Japan), we created a new photobooth installation on the sacred hill of Hiyoriyama, where the inhabitants sought shelter during the tsunami that hit the coast on March 13th, 2011.
The visitor enters a space made atemporal by a white light inviting to meditation and contemplation. Through two thin openings the Pacific Ocean can be seen, reminder that this zone, once devastated, is being rebuilt.
The participant is invited to have his portrait taken, in order to keep a trace of his passage and to show his benevolence towards the city of Ishinomaki, its inhabitants and its lost ones." 📸 @camille @emile @watarium @alabaz
