In this in-depth artist feature, I speak with photographer Kei Ito and sound artist Andrew Keiper about Afterimage Requiem, a large-scale visual and sound installation that probes the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and the two artists’ intertwined family histories. Afterimage Requiem was exhibited at the Baltimore Memorial in January 2018 and received front-page coverage from the Baltimore Sun and acclaim from BBC Culture, Washington Post and Baltimore Magazine.
