RadianceScape 2016

After 30 years of the Chernobyl disaster and 5 years of the Fukushima incidence, people should be more aware how radiation is affecting our living. Back in 2014, RadianceScape was first created for comparing the radiation level of Fukushima and Hong Kong in an audiovisual representation.

RadianceScape 2016 is a data-score installation. The sound and visuals are generated based on the latest radiation data-set collected from the Safecast.org – a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements. The scanning laser technique is used to construct the dialogue between space and the data-visualization. Different tonal drone ambience and noises are generated base on the radioactivity. The sound samples are captured with an electromagnetic field detector device. The graphical scores are separated into 2 parts; the first part is illustrating the zone around Chernobyl nuclear power plant, the second part is illustrating the route of Fukushima, where visualising the radiation level from the Fukushima Prefecture to the nuclear power plant.
