2014 – Demon Core

The Demon Core was an experimental sphere of plutonium, used in research in the US in the late 40s (read more about it on Wikipedia). I made this assemblage to pay my respects to the 200.000 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki that were sacrificed to what amounts to a horrible combination of science experiment and warlike hubris.

circa 35 x 35 x 8 cm.
Assemblage of wood, glass, sand, lead, mirror, wrist watch and acrylics.
