After the terrible events of March 11th, 2011 the entire world has sat glued to their television sets, waiting with bated breath for the other shoe to drop. We are all affected - we are all tsunami victims. We all share the helpless feeling of being trapped in the waiting room, unable to do anything to help.
What is the artist role after such a disaster? Without medical skills, or search and rescue experience, what sort of assistance can we offer. Sympathy. Solidarity. Hope.
Aftershock is about restoring hope. Aftershock is a collective project from creators around the world, sharing their thoughts, feelings, condolences, experiences and memories of the nation of Japan. The proceeds of this book will be donated to rehabilitating and rebuilding disaster struck areas of Tohoku and Kanto.
