"Voices from Japan" is a traveling multimedia group exhibition in response to the Tohoku region earthquakes, tsunami, and nuclear disasters in March 2011. The collection includes 100 tanka (31-syllable Japanese poems) by survivors of these disasters, together with photographs by Magdalena Sole, photo collages by Saori and Yoshihito Sasaguchi, calligraphy by Kanji Chiba, and a film about the aftermath by Joe Krakora. The original exhibition, assembled by the Studio for Cultural Exchange, Isao Tsujimoto, director, was shown in summer 2012 at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. The poems were translated by Laurel Rasplica Rodd (University of Colorado-Boulder), Amy Heinrich (Columbia University), and Joan E. Ericson (Colorado College).
