Vaughan, S (2012) Tohoku: solo exhibition. In: European Geosciences Union Assembly, Austria Center, Vienna, Austria, 22 - 27 April 2012. Number of pieces: 25 large-scale exhibition prints. [Exhibition]
|Abstract:||Tohoku is the third in a series of photographic works made at the edges of the Earth’s tectonic plates. This on-going research uses photography to investigate geological phenomena and associated cultural histories of the land, in locations where the Earth’s surface is regenerating, subducting or transforming. The resulting photographs combine the scrutiny of catastrophic geological upheaval, within the context of a human-cultural understanding of place and history.|

A solo exhibition of photographs from the Tohoku series was shown at the European Geosciences Union Assembly in Vienna in April 2012, with an audience of 11,000 delegates from the international geoscience research community. The exhibition was accompanied by a lecture presentation as part of the EGU Assembly conference.
Tohoku was originally intended as a further investigation of seismic histories in the Japanese landscape that extended the concerns of the previous series (A Catfish Sleeps). It emerged from Vaughan’s interest in research by Kenji Satake (Earthquake Institute, University of Tokyo) and Brian Atwater (USGS and University of Washington) into an historical tsunami that occurred on the east coast of Japan in 1700.
