このビデオは、2011年3月11日北日本での地震と津波によって引き起こされた、福島原子力発電所の事故と放射能汚染をテーマに作られました。 福島原子力発電所の事故は非常に深刻で、日本の約半分が住めなくなるのではないかと心配された大災害でした。
オリジナルの動画「Compostion FUKUSHIMA 2011」は、地震が発生した2011年3月11日から同年3月31日までの、ネットニュースの写真とその見出しを時系列につなぎ、アルゴリズムで画像データから音楽を作成した約1時間の映像作品です。このビデオ「March 2011」は、2024年1月1日に日本海側北陸地方で発生した大地震と被害により、再び原子力発電所事故が起きる恐れがあったことを受けて作成された改訂版です。上にある右のイメージをクリックすると、その10分ダイジェスト版が見れます。
日々危険度が進行していった福島原発事故の記憶は風化し、その時の危機感は年々忘れ去られつつあります。 これは福島原発事故を知らない新しい世代へのメッセージでもあります。 世界は今、福島原発事故の教訓を学ばないまま、放射能汚染の危険と隣り合わせの未来を迎えています。 このビデオは CC ライセンスに基づいて無料で配布されています。

Summary:
The video is about the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Accident and radioactive contamination caused by the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northern Japan. The Accident at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant was so severe that there were fears of a creeping poison that would make about half of Japan uninhabitable. The video "March 2011" was created in response to the massive earthquake and damage that occurred in the Hokuriku region of Japan on the coast of the Sea of Japan on January 1, 2024, which threatened to cause another Nuclear Power Plant Accident. The original "Composition FUKUSHIMA 2011" is an approximately one-hour video that uses an algorithm to create music from images by connecting photos and their headlines from online news from March 11, 2011, to March 31, 2011, in chronological order.
The area surrounding the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is still uninhabitable due to radioactive contamination. The only way to eliminate the radioactive contamination caused by severe Accidents and the contamination of land and sea by radioactive waste is to strongly recognize the danger of radioactivity and switch to Natural Energy. However, the memory of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Accident is fading, and the sense of crisis at that time is being forgotten year by year. The video is also a message to the new generation that does not know the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Accident well. The world now faces a future in which we face the dangers of radioactive contamination without learning the lessons of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Accident,


Kenji Kojima's Biography:
Kenji Kojima is a digital artist. Since the early 1990s, he has been experimenting with the relationships between perception and cognition, technology, music, and visual art. He was born in Japan and moved to New York in 1980. He spent his first 10 years in New York City painting with egg tempera. The personal computer improved rapidly in the 1980s. He felt more comfortable with computer art than painting. Digital art was clean and made his mind light. He changed his artwork to digital in the early 1990s. He developed the computer software for his artwork. But there was a big problem, the software soon did not work on the new operating system. He converted his artwork to video while it was working. His video-transformed programming art has been exhibited in New York and at media art festivals around the world, spanning the U.S., Europe, Brazil, the Middle East, Asia, and online exhibitions. After COVID-19, he could not shoot videos outside. He worked on a series called "The Musical Interpretation of Paintings". In late 2023, he returned to his art theme of ecology, social and human perception. His latest work is concerned with incorporating generative AI into media art to create works with a stronger message. Kenji Kojima Resume
