    Throw me some ideas!

    Our next project focuses around the concept of Utopian peace in Japan following the A-bombing on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The survivors don't really seem to have hate for the bomb, even though their bodies are mangled; children in Japan are taught peace and respect since childhood.

    Any ideas? I need to start tomorrow.

    As an environment idea, you could perhaps think of what kind of ground zero monument they might have built in that scenario.

    I would think there would be no "old" architecture left, no trees etc. so keep the landscape in mind. All new construction, a society rebuilding itself.

    I started in class today, going for a very relaxed figure, sitting on a loosely defined space, with her hands outstretched to a dove, and some others flitting around her. I might make a kind of sky to go in the back, or maybe not...Well, I've got till Wednesday to think on it.

    this is sort of off topic~ish...

    a friend of mine who is over in Tanzania doing missionary work learned this from a class of kids he was teaching. the kids learned in school that prior to WWII the japanese looked just like the whites did, but after the bomb was dropped the blast was so bright that it caused their race to permanently squint and the radiation turned their skin a yellow color.

    it sounds like history class in africa is way more racist and interesting.

    Quick thoughts...

    Have an entire community hugging each other, but everybody is in shadow. Or blackened and smoldering.

    I think there's probably some way to combine a heart with an atom bomb explosion. LIke the puffs of the clouds of the explosion are all made of hearts.

    What about a pastoral scene, maybe the goings-on in the rice paddies... the only weird thing is you can seek everybody's skeletons though their clothes, like an x ray.

    At least Icarus tried!
