The Bomb Project (2002)

The Bomb Project is the result of online image research initially done for a series of paintings of Cold War era U.S. nuclear tests. It went online in rudimentary form in Spring 2000, and has gradually been upgraded and organized into a comprehensive compendium of nuclear-related links. The Bomb Project is intended specifically as a resource for artists working in all media, from net.art, film and video, eco-intervention and site-specific installation, to more traditional forms of art and agitprop. It includes raw material, such as still and moving declassified imagery, as well as government documents and treaties, divergent claims, political opinion, and a news feed with links to articles and current events. It offers both the industry's and alternative/activist points of view, as well as original declassified files and graphic documentation produced by the nuclear industry itself, providing a context for comparative study, analysis and creativity.
