In Japanese, the term "Henka" 変化 translates the ideas of change and transformation by literally meaning "evolution towards something different." HENKA is a research and creation project led by the artists Thibault Honoré and Justine Maljak, in collaboration with the sedimentologist Nathalie Babonneau. The objective is the artistic and scientific study of the ashes generated by two volcanic eruptions, which occurred approximately 30,000 and 100,000 years ago on the Japanese archipelago, based on the analysis of sedimentary core samples collected in 2018 in the Ryukyu abyssal trenches, south of Japan, during the oceanographic campaign EAGER.
