I just fell from my chair. Toronto-born, Tokyo-based entrepreneur, occasional artist and almost architect Christian Forestell (here a short interview) is right away starting the world’s largest painting project entitled Bikini Lines to benefit children orphaned in the 2011 Fukushima disaster!
Bikini Lines – The Cactus Dome Painting
Bikini Lines is a proposed massive, mixed media project inspired by a lack of standardized nuclear disaster reporting, in particular the panic that set in over Tokyo following the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and subsequent meltdown. Based on crowd-funding, the project’s main focus is on painting the huge Cactus Dome on the Marshall Islands, an enormous, foot-and-a-half-thick, 107m wide dome consisting of 358 gigantic concrete panels built over a nuclear crater, seriously!
Therefore, Christian is searching for artists, videographers, photographers and writers to paint, document and cover the event live. And of course the crowd-funded project is searching for supporters, so make sure to form your own opinion about this unbelievable project!
Sounds like a great idea and it’s probably a great chance to visit some South Pacific atolls. Their IndiGoGo campaign launches February 1st – I’ll keep you posted!
The Bikini Lines funding campaign just started. so go and crowd-fund this amazing project!
