The Explosions of Every Nuclear Bomb to 1998

The Explosions of Every Nuclear Bomb to 1998

The Explosions of Every Nuclear Bomb to 1998 This video, by artist Isao Hashimoto, charts every nuclear detonation from the US's tests in 1945 to the modern era. Even if you're versed in history, it still offers a perspective that's tough to entirely grasp in numbers alone. The pacing, mixed with an Atari-esque soundtrack is both distancing and hypnotic. As more and more countries gain nuclear technologies, the map becomes a terrifying game of Simon. By the end, it feels remarkable that we never encountered a game over...as of yet.
