2019 RISD DM-2039-01: IMMER-SPACE
Nagasaki is my memory and fantasy of Japan. Japanese culture is a kind of culture that is intimate but has an infinite distance to me. The Second World War, the Nanjing Massacre, the Puppet Manchuria and the bubble economy of Japan in the last century, and nowadays the most modern and lively country, its various attributes have caused me to infinite delusion, and also made me nowhere to place all my complex feelings.
In the winter of 2019, countless incidents happened to me in Japan like nuclear bombs landed on the sea, exploding, radiating.
What if the Fat Man landed on the sea near Nagasaki?
Everything has passed, and everything will continue.
Nothing seems changed, but nothing is the same.
“Tranquility in mind as still water, not even surprised by the billows and waves.”
