White Sand, Green Pines

<Restored Version>  White Sand, Green Pines – Digest Version (above)

White Sand, Green Pines

Japan’s once beautiful shores were immortalized in the words

“white sand, green pines.”

Natural shores unfettered by wave-dissipating concrete blocks;

beaches free of plastic garbageー

such nostalgic scenery is captured in video from over 30 years ago.

What have we gained in our time; what have we lost?

Through dialogue with the ocean, we converse with ourselves.
