POOL, loss of color is an art installation by Jeroen Bisscheroux that brings light to the devastating tsunami that affected the Sendai, Japan region and related events involving the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant’s 3 nuclear reactors in one image. Recognizing the looming fears still surrounding the meltdown, Jeroen created a carpet-like installation in Osaka, Japan in an effort to bring the tragedies closer to human attention.
"It is a translation of the threat of an even greater tragedy that hangs over our heads. The problems surrounding the nuclear power plant in Fukushima are far from being resolved. POOL, loss of color must emphasize the focus and timeliness of events both in Japan, but especially in Western Europe, where the events in Fukushima have faded into the background."
