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
