Chernobyl Rose Hedge a virtual monument to nuclear disaster
........ ........ ........ ........
Chernobyl Rose Hedge is an art project launched in 2017. A virtual network of roses will cover the destroyed Chernobyl power plant.

It grows through collective action and forms a decentralized monument.

In 2017, one hundred years after the Russian Revolution and 30 years after the Chernobyl disaster, a giant structure was slid over the destroyed reactor. This New Safe Confinement (NSC) is designed to prevent uncontrolled leakage of radioactivity over a hundred-year period.

But are engineering skills enough to withstand wars, revolutions and climatic changes?

Current events make this promise seem just as doubtful as a look back in history.

Let's create a rose hedge together to strengthen the promise of technology.

By dropping roses on the surface of the confinement - symbolic of all present and future sacrifices - their stems will intertwine into a strong braided shield of wishes and hope for a peaceful future.
