An artist specializing in laser installations, Hiro Yamagata newest work incorporates solar and wind energy.
In memory of the Bamiyan Buddhas destroyed by the Taliban, he intends to project images
of the buddhas onto a rockface near Bamiyan, Afghanistan.

The lasers will be powered by windmills and solar panels. 

"Of course I help people, but it's more about not harming people....

I'm doing a fine art piece.

That's my purpose - not for human rights, or for supporting religion or a political statement."

Bamiyan, Afghanistan

Your mind understands what you have been taught; your heart what is true.
