Nuclear Anxiety

Nuclear Anxiety was born in the days after the Fukushima disaster. In the same time the protests in the arabic world exploded: Lybia, Egypt, Tunisia. The earth itself seems to be revolting, tracking a global map of foreboding.

Nuclear Anxiety start from this widespread state to give a voice to the planetary discussion on the energetic future of the earth.

The Project

People worldwide have been discussing, informing, confronting each others about nuclear energy, using social networks: fear, doubts, ideas, hopes, wishes expressed across countries and cultures showing the need to understand the planet’s energetic future. Nuclear Anxiety is a global performance and a publication created to narrate the story of this ubiquitous discussion.

Nuclear Anxiety a web visualisation based on the biggest social nework platform (Twitter, FaceBook, FriendFeed, FourSquare): while you look at it, it fetches the most recent tweets speaking about “nuclear” in several languages, adds them to a database and plots them on a map using icons.

Accessible by web, Nuclear Anxiety is also an iPhone and iPad application. The “Benefit Edition” version of the app will finance an event in wich multiple artists from around the world will participate in describing their vision for the energetic future of the planet.
