|Tsunami Preparedness Week March 25-31 2012||
Monday, March 26, 2012 - 20:30
OOE would like to draw your attention to the Tsunami Preparedness Week. Run by the US National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program, the week long event is marked online with some materials and notes of caution for those based here in the US. For more see: http://nthmp.tsunami.gov/taw/tsunami-awareness-week.html
Sunday, March 25, 2012 - 10:15 to 15:15
OOE team was out and about yesterday - Sunday 25th March, documenting a series of interventions at physical sites within Washington DC that relate to the representation of the events of the Tsunami and the unfolding disaster following the Fukushima Diaichi Nuclear reactor fallout. The sites are not selected for any political reasons, or in relation to an activist agenda, but rather the intervention becomes a way to reveal the physical locations of the many organisations whose job it is to deal with these events and to represent the public and International concerns within Washington DC. In some cases, these organisations which are media, corporate or defense facilities have a less visible presence than their activities, in other cases the sites are symbolic of International relations between the USA and Japan.

This news seemed to be serendipitous with the project. The news that a ship is adrift off of the coast of Canada was part of this International Story that highlighted in a very real way the impact of the Tsunami. It is now estimated by scientists that: "up to two million tonnes could travel across the ocean to the waters off North America." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthnews/9165963/Japanese-trawler-lost-in-tsunami-spotted-from-Canada.html

Office of Experiments were delighted to be invited to meet with some of the artists who take place in this exhibition presented by transformer and tokyo based art collective Dan Dans. The exhibition focused on Japanese artists response to the March 2011 earthquake and Tsunamis. Many of the artist agreed to take vials with them back to Tokyo or to take them to the Cherry Trees. We would like to thank those we met here and extend our gratitude for the cooperation on this project.
|Capital Skyline - Launch of 5x5||
Saturday, March 24, 2012 - 21:00 to 23:00
The Capital Skyline Hotel played host to the launch of the 5x5 project. The OOE team was there to meet guests and distributed over 220 vials to willing participants who expressed an interest in taking part in the project. With the tears in their care some may be posting the results, others selecting a more private and personal response, a public artwork played out as a private matter.
