Ju worked with an army of volunteers to drag a 30 tonne fishing trawler out of the sea and into a resting place in central Nagoya for The Thing I’ll Be Doing For The Rest Of My Life.

A boy on the deck of the trawler broadcasted to the surrounding streets with a megaphone. He described the disasters over the last one hundred years that he has witnessed.

Inspired by the theme of the Triennale of Awakening and a research trip to the tsunami ravaged region of Sendai, the work explores how ordinary men and women spring into action in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
