THE ZONE is an artistic installation that presents, in a didactic way, some elements of the exclusion zone of Fukushima in Japan.

The exlusion zone is the evacuated area as a result of the maximun level nuclear accident unleashed when the earthquake and the tsunami forces of March 11, 2011 collided with The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. 160.000 people were forced to leave their homes and workplaces in a matter of minutes when the containment buildings which contain four reactors, began to explode one after another, spreading their invisible radioactive particles into the enviroment.
The area declared uninhabitable for humans comprises a geographical area of 800 square kilometers around the destroyed nuclear power station.

If a recent television series with the same name presented a well-documented fiction where an accident in a reactor devastated a wide region of Asturias, THE ZONE contributes with an interactive installation to present, to the Asturian public and visitors, some elements of this particular territory affected for the consequences of the radiological accident.

THE ZONE is the winning Project of the V grant of DKV Seguros-Álvarez Margaride, jointly organized by LABoral and the insurance company.
