For your next art project on nuclear war, head to The Bomb Project where artist Joy Garnett has gathered together related images (still and moving), information and links as a resource for artists. The availability of online material struck Garnett as she researched an earlier project (painting pictures of nuclear explosions), and the resulting site provides a frightening and visual testament to the nuclear phenomenon. From stunning 'sunsets' to reading lists, exposes of radiation leaks, links to visual arts projects and up-to-the-minute news feeds, this is a rich resource. The data, debris and aesthetics of the nuclear arms race considered in an art context points at issues of information decentralization, and certainly serves as a reality check to any overly idyllic or politically disengaged artists. - Helen Varley Jamieson
