The Beach is His Canvas

Artist and photoblogger HiMY SYeD likes to claim Woodbine Beach as his canvas. See him do so tonight as he creates a lantern work of art monument to spell out Nagasaki Hiroshima. The Full Circle project is an offshoot of a series of events taking place worldwide. SYeD has charted the progress of a group of Buddhist Monks who have walked for twenty-five days to raise awareness, and keep alive and ‘atomic flame’ that will finally be extinguished 60 years to the date. “To co-incide to the minute in realtime in New Mexico with extinguishing of the atomic flame,” SYed will move his lanterns into place at 11pm. The lantern lighting ends at 11:30pm. And everything begins around 9pm.
