Hiroshima 8:14 a.m., 08/06/1945
18" x 25"
Electrical tape on paper
On August 6 at 8:16 a.m., Japanese time, the atomic bomb was dropped over Hiroshima, Japan. A second atomic bomb was released over Nagasaki, Japan three days later. Although no large scale nuclear weapon has been used in war since then, today there are countless people all over the world who are suffering from war. Humanity cannot, must not ever again use nuclear weapons against each other. As a Japanese artist, one small action I can take against war is to try to express the horror and sorrow of war. I have created a series of three art pieces, using tape on paper, depicting the morning of the Hiroshima bombing.
