25 millions cubic metre : 

Black bags, piled up on 5 floors until the eyes can’t reach the end. Geometric, endless, the fresco «25 million cubic meters » transposes the organized and methodical nature of the decontamination project in Fukushima, as well as its excessiveness. This « great cleaning » project of radioactivity, of an unprecedented scale, will eventually generate 25 million cubic meters of nuclear waste, equivalent to 10 000 olympic pools full of contaminated branches, leaves and soil. The decontamination, supposed to give back Fukushima’s lands their virginity, ends up visually polluting the region’s landscapes. The black bags, like ominous birds, bring back the memory of the nuclear accident and jeopardizes the population’s potential return.
