Since 2011, the 311 Earthquake in Fukushima once again woke up the world’s attention upon the nightmare of the nuclear disaster. Until now, there is no workable solution for Japan to fix the leaking problem. The highly radiated wastewater has to be released in the Pacific Ocean and keeps contaminating the marine life. It results in damaging the whole food chain. Meanwhile, the Japanese government keeps hiding the news and real situation of the radiation problem. RadianceScape is a data-visualizing sonic composition, aiming at visualising the radioactivity and at raising awareness about the issue to the public. It is based on the live radiation data from the Safecast.org, a global sensor network for collecting and sharing radiation measurements, in order to generate an audio-visual cityscape. It appears in a point-cloud mapping outlook in which the density of the radiation level is representing the visibility of the cityscape. The sequence of the images is grabbed from the Google Streetview API’s hidden depth map data. The sonic composition is based on the locative data, to generate different tonal drone ambience and noise.
The graphical score consists of 2 separated parts. The first part illustrates the route of Hong Kong, visualising the radiation level from Mongkok to Tsim Sha Tsui area. The second part illustrates the route of Fukushima, which visualizes the radiation level from the Fukushima Prefecture to the nuclear power plant.
