This video and the sound are constructed around the world topics/events of the year 1964 and the personal accounts from memory of the year 1964 by relatives of mine that are still living in the city of Hiroshima. It is a point of view and a short review of the ideological, philosophical and political meaning of human life, complex social systems or events and the consideration given to individual life at that time (history the year 1964) in history.


The year 1964 was a leap year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calender, it is a benchmark of the time on earth. I was one year old and lived in Hiroshima city in 1964. I interviewed my relatives in Hiroshima in 2013 about the year 1964. We talk about what was happening, what changed regionally, nationally and internationally and the technology that was developed day by day, however communication and correspondence were not as fast and closely linked as they are now.


Jean-Paul Sartre was awarded the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature and he’d refused it...


The year 1964 was ending on Thursday of the Gregorian calender which means in Middel English „Thor’s day (Norse mythology)“.
