Radiation art in Japan – level 1

07-05-2014 15:00

Here is news from Japan. A man collects things. These things are radioactive.

He measures the radiation. He shows the radiation in pictures. A university professor helps him

Some people call the man’s work art. The man says it is not art. It only shows radiation visually.

Difficult words: radioactive (it is a type of energy that has to do with decay and is not good for people and animals), measure (to find how much radiation there is), visually (in pictures).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
