Worldwide Internet Art Project "The Sudden Morning"

Everyone take a photograph at 8.15 on August 6 to mark the 60th anniversary of the atomic bomb dropping on Hiroshima.

In these dark times, it is important that right-minded people express their desire for peace world-wide and commemorate on of the most horrific acts of war ever perpetrated.

The Atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima at 8:15 am on August 6, 1945. Just 60 yeas after that what scenes are we going to see on 2005, on the very same day and on the very same time that the A-bomb was dropped?
We may see a family at the breakfast table, business people hurrying for work, a newborn baby, people preparing for a wedding or just a quiet harbor.
So many scenes will be laid before us.
This project will give us a chance to see the different views worldwide on the 8:15 am of August 6th this year through the net.
Looking at how people all over the world spend this ordinary morning, we will share some kind of feeling about that sudden morning in Hiroshima. We believe that this will help us genuinely think of what real peace or happiness is all about.
The project is supported by Hiroshima citizens mainly consist of IT engineers. We fully welcome your participation in this project.
