Media: Chromogenic Color print, Sunlight, Sunflower
A c-print photogram made with a sunflower grown with water of Fukushima.
Sunflowers were a common sight among many on that bright morning in Hiroshima in 1945, a last possible sight for many. Today, sunflowers are believed to have an ability to clean radioactive soil by consuming the radiation through their roots. The study is still on-going and it may not be the short/quick solution, but I wonder if in the near future, a scientist will create a sunflower that can consume the radioactive material and can live off the radiation. And if so, it is only natural to think that the post nuclear apocalyptic world will be covered with sunflowers for the next few hundred years. Nothing but sunflowers, blowing radioactive ash in the contaminated wind.
