The digital archive documents Japan’s March 2011 earthquake and tsunami aftermath in mixed and social media  and databases (via Harvard’s Metalab). The on-going participatory production took a long time to publish as the mass of material must have been overwhelming to filter, edit and put together. It has the look and feel of a rich media archive of a sad “shared memory”, leaning on the side of text.
