VIDEO: What the Birds Knew: Ken + Julia Yonetani

Ken + Julia Yonetani talk about their latest artworks in 4A’s exhibition, What the Birds Knew (3 August – 3 November 2012) and how the use of Uranium Glass as a material in these works relate to our sense of allure to the power of electricity and technology. In the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan last year they also convey how through this exhibition they hope to manifest the fear of radiation in contemporary Japan and parallel the cultural anxieties shared between the Japanese, and Indigenous Australians through the Aboriginal story of the Green Ant Dreaming.
