1Future Presents Not Yet Free | Fountain#NW

Tokyo-based multimedia artist, Akira Fujimoto, explores the contradiction of nuclear deterrence in his installation Fountain#NW (nuclear weapon). The hypnotic and thought-provoking work was created during his residency at the Andrew Freedman Home in the Bronx for Not Yet Free in 2017.

泉のごとく涌き上がり続けている都市と
都市の破壊を目的に発展を続ける核兵器
Cities keep spring out like a fountain,
Nuclear weapons keep developing to destroy cities.

核なき世界と核抑止力の矛盾を「安全」と詠い続ける
We continue declaring “safe” with contradiction
of the no nuke world and nuke deterrence.
