Michael Light: 100 Suns

Michael Light... 008 Stokes, 19 Kilotons, Nevada 1957 (2003, archival inkjet print). From Michael Light: 100 Suns at Hosfelt Gallery. "...Between 1945 and 1992 the United States detonated 1,149 nuclear test explosions. Until 1962 the tests were conducted in the atmosphere and oceans. 106 of the 216 above-ground blasts were exploded 63 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada. The remaining were detonated at the Enewetak or Bikini Atolls in the Pacific Ocean. The immediate and lasting consequences of these tests were unforeseen."
