As my exhibition in Hiroshimas former branch of the japanese bank comes to an end I look back on a very moving week. A very special thanks goes out to Claire, my better half for her support from the first until the last step of the whole project. http://clairewinkler.tumblr.com
During this week I got a lot of feedback, I was once more overwhelmed by the reception my work got. Mrs Sumikawa and Mrs Ogawa showing up really meant the world to me! Thank you so much. And thanks for the tomatoes.
Also a big thank you to everybody who took part in the preparation, calling, mailing, translating, encouraging me, driving me, pushing me, giving me sense and direction when I lost it. And thank you to everybody who looked at the pictures, shared a thought, talked about it, wrote about it. Please continue to do so and have an eye on Fukushima. Recent events make me very afraid of the future. My experience of the last four month is, that here in Japan the awareness is not nearly as high as it should be. So please watch and share: http://thomasdamm.tumblr.com/post/57682772976/fukushima-water-leak-emergency
