Yoshiko Seino’s The Sign of Life is a remarkable vision of contemporary Japanese landscape. Signs of surviving nature meld with signs of lifelessness, ancient history with twentieth-century technology, beauty with horror – such as the signs of nature after a typhoon or an earthquake. Amid the disintegration of Japanese culture she seeks lasting signs of the essential spirit that might still hold sway and be able to mediate between old and new, East and West.
