Shadows of the Survivors

BY RIKAKO NAGASHIMA
@ VOL 107 ON OCT 30, 2013

When the atomic bomb hit Hiroshima, people's shadows were permanently scorched in to their surroundings. Rikako Nagashima and her team contacted 23 survivors and took copies of their shadows. They then placed these shadows around Hiroshima as a memorial and to spread awareness of what happened. From Peace Shadow Project's website we can see where these survivors were, hear their stories, and leave them a personal message. (in Japanese with English subtitles)

"Presentation of the Day" on December 11, 2013.

Shadows and Light - Architecture, Abroad in Japan

BY WOODBURY UNIVERSITY
@ VOL 125 ON MAY 28, 2015

In referring to Japan's intrinsically and simultaneously traditional and futuristic duality, Woodbury University architecture students on a Japan study away trip ask, "are the shrines and neon places separate from each other?"

They draw attention to architectural examples they discovered in their time in various Japan cities that highlight the focus of their studies, shadows and light.  

 Come and find the correlations with them!

BY CHRIS HELLAWELL
@ VOL 31 ON APR 20, 2017

Chris Hellawell is the Founder of the Edinburgh Tool Library, the first charity tool lending library in the UK. 

He has worked for a variety of charities both home and abroad, in particular addressing unemployment in disadvantaged groups. It was on visiting one of his old haunts in Toronto when he came across the concept if a tool library. He decided to introduce the idea to the UK, with an added element of employability training for young unemployed people. The Edinburgh Tool Library opened on March the 7th 2015, bringing together the idea of sharing as a way to enrich lives, save money, and reduce consumption, with the social goal of giving young people self belief and a route into the work.
