The artist collective founded in 2002 by Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun, in its latest production, reflects upon the terrible happenings which followed the Great Tohoku earthquake in Japan in March 2011.

The Radiant examines different issues around nuclear energy, the past and future threat that radiations can cause and it uses the illuminated cities and villages as an example of what can be changed to avoid these tragedies and must not happened again.
