Nuclear Anxiety grabs in realtime the conversations and the lonely shouts about nuclear energy coming from the people of the web. Using familiar configurations (a map, locations, messages), the visitor is confronted with a realtime voyage around the world through the expressions of people engaging nuclear discourses: worried, fearful, angry, and also confident, hopeful and positive. All kinds of clashing points of view that describe the deep impact that energetic policies have on our planet and on our cognition, and the ghosts that fill our imaginaries.

Chernobyl nuclear disaster is still in our minds and in the continuous stream of information coming from the media that anyone who lived during those times remembers quite well: the contradicting information about nuclear energy, what was contaminated with radiation, what wasn’t, what you could eat and what you should have avoided.
And now, Fukushima.
And, in the background of both events, as a continuous barely hearable noise, the scenario of this enormous topic for discussion: the energetic future of the world, between oil, nuclear power and new, renewable forms of energy.
This is something that is often discussed in terms of “future”, but it is a future that has already arrived.
