As Ishiuchi writes: “From the 19,000 items made available to me [at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum], I chose things that at one time had touched skin and bodies, and photographed them…. A flower-patterned dress colourfully dyed. A puff of gathered, shiny skirt woven of silk thread. Cool-looking, thin, georgette materials that once shed the summer heat. Used kimonos transformed into blouses and cut to make air-raid hoods…. These objects, exposed to the heat and radioactive rays of a fire ball that suddenly appeared one summer morning, and relinquished by the victims of the atomic bombing, have been on earth as long as I have. When I came to realize the coincidence, I caught my breath at their vivid hues and distinct textures, their flaws and complicated detail. These are too deeply linked to daily lives to regard as ‘historical materials.’”

Then I had time to look at the moon while I was thinking over my own thoughts—the moon traveled through the clouds tingeing them yellow as she passed along, with two stars near her, one larger than the other.Dorothy Wordsworth, 04.12.1802

One large star in particular excited our admiration; it flashed intensely, and changed color incessantly, sometimes blushing like a ruby, and again gleaming like an emerald.

Gradually the stars appeared, but as yet no moon.
