“1945-1998” by Isao Hashimoto: a history of nuclear detonations

Via “1945-1998” by Isao Hashimoto, a thought-provoking video which puts a particular context on nuclear detonations and radiation:

This piece of work is a bird’s eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world.

There were 2053 nuclear detonations in the period.
