Artist Project Illustrates “Fear and Folly” of Nukes

A map created by Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto – 橋本公 – shows all the 2,053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998.

According to the CTBTO website that hosts the time-lapse video, the artist created it with the goal of showing “the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.”

Hashimoto has also created a video that simply lists the names of all the atomic bombs launched in the past century.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
