    Abstract

    When the magnitude 9 quake hit the Tohoku Plain on the east coast of Japan on 11 March 2011, a very human wave of shock and fear ran through many, including Australian-based artists Julia and Ken Yonetani. Their current exhibition deals with nuclear danger. Still radioactive but contained - the exhibition, with uranium glass beads wired into luminous chandeliers "challenges the viewer in a direct way with the presence of radioactivity".
