Miyajima counts down from 9 to 1. When he reaches "0," he inhales and holds his breath, and puts his face in the water from the sea. In front of the sea is the nuclear power plant, which was severely damaged by the Tsunami that stroke Fukushima, Japan in 2011. This performance is related to "Clear Zero in the Water" in 1996.
