This short film is a portrait of Tofino, BC intertidal artist Pete Clarkson as he crafts his most ambitious and personal project to date: a memorial to the 2011 Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami. He, like so many of us around the world, was deeply affected by the disaster. Years later, as splintered and mangled timber and other objects started to wash ashore, the disaster hit home again for Clarkson, and the inspiration for his memorial was born. In Clarkson’s caring hands, the remnants from the Tohoku region take on a life of their own as he shapes them into a unique public sculpture. The result is an evocative memorial that is a site of remembrance and contemplation, and an emotional bridge connecting an artist, his community and a people an ocean away.

    Great little feature! The Tsunami and all the video and stories of the people have also touched me. I used to live at Myrtle Beach, SC and no one who lives on the beach really ever thinks about just how fast and how terrifying nature can be. If I lived out on the Pacific Coast and found this debris, I would also collect it. Fascinating.
