Shadowlands

2012
By: Produced Elaine Hill - Photography Robert Knoth
Project type: Installation Web

This entry was proposed and written by Elaine Hills

Description:
Produced Feb 2012 to document the effects on the people who continue to be effected by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear disaster. Shadowlands was the produced from the sounds and images brought back by Photographer Robert Knoth and Antoinette de Jong when they visited the area in late 2011.

The project had no traditional “beginning-middle-end” rather a collection of glimpses into ordinary peoples lives and beautiful images of places empty of people.

Built simply using html (a single scrolling page) and incorporating additional audio visual elements to enrich the viewers experience.

Simple coding along with the youtube CC feature allowed Greenpeace offices around the world to create their own language versions, including Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Korean & Hungarian to make this as internationally accessible as possible.

The video was produced to be shown at live exhibitions. The interactive exhibition can be viewed here http://www.greenpeace.org/shadowlands

    It is an interesting watch and some of your followers may like to take a look :). The more hits and ratings we get on the site the better! Please follow the link to view-

    Synopsis:

    Brisbane Indigenous artist Vernon Ah Kee has been selected as one of four Australian artists to exhibit at the Venice Biennale as a part of Once Removed a show which represents Australia’s selection at this prestigious world stage. The Venice Biennale is acknowledged as the most significant and important showcase event in the international contemporary visual arts community. The chance to exhibit at this prominent event is a career and life changing experience for any artist. Vernon Ah Kee’s evocative work challenges past and current injustices to aboriginal people and delves into beach culture and race issues surrounding the 2005 Cronulla riots. How will his work be received by the rest of the world?

    Please take a look,

    Thankyou for your time,

    :D
