The expiration date / advertisement

The expiration date

Right now, our main issue in today’s society is the global warming. With the same concept of being ‘submerged’, the melting iceberg and the submerging island are personalized by a person being submerged in water. By seeing the sense of emergency and the sympathy on the drowning person’s face, one can feel such emotions toward the melting icebergs as well. In addition, by having a lonely island in the wide open sea, I tried to make people notice the small islands which are and already have disappeared. The expiration dates 'EXP 2026.08.16' and 'EXP 2010.03.08' are to make people cautious and be warned about the future.
