Luke Jerram’s Seismogram Chart Art: A New Perspective on the Tohoku Earthquake

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 8, 2011


Artist Luke Jerram has converted the seismogram of this year’s devastating earthquake in Japan into a 3D printed sculpture. The seismogram charts the nine minutes of the earthquake, with its varying intensities. It’s called the Tōhoku Japanese Earthquake Sculpture.

The sculpture measures 12 inches in length and 8 inches in width. The 3D printing was done using rapid prototyping technology from a 3D image, obtained by rotating the graph. This isn’t Jerram’s first disaster sculpture. He’s also done one on the Hiroshima atomic bomb explosion. Next month, he plans on creating a glass version of this sculpture since he’ll be the artist in residence as the Washington Museum of Glass.
