Projection in Hiroshima
Krzysztof Wodiczko (born in Poland, 1943) is a public artist who has added a critical dimension to the problems of urban life through his work in cities all over the world.
In August 1999, his first "Public Projection" in Japan was held in front of the A-Bomb Dome. Motion images of the hands of fourteen people, including survivors of the atomic bomb (Japanese as well as Koreans) and the youth of Hiroshima, were projected upon a river embankment below the Dome along with their voices.
This documentary follows the development of this yearlong project in Japan and focuses on the artist's method of work as well as his view on art and society.
