Collaborative digital art: Japanese tsunami

Collaborative digital art: Japanese tsunami

It’s been year since a tsunami devastated the northeast coast of Japan. And to honor those who are bravely rebuilding their communities, I’ve recently collaborated with a group of students and residents from Tohoku, Japan to create an interactive artwork. Armed with donated cameras, they took hundreds of photos of both the disaster’s aftermath and, more importantly, their hopeful recovery. They then responded to these visions with poetic message. Digital poet Jason Nelson, then compiled these photographs and texts and using an infinitely recombining/zooming engine, created interactive mosaic digital artwork.
