A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 by Isao Hasimoto

This is just too good not to post. The multimedia artwork titled '1945-1998' from the series 'the fear and the folly of nuclear weapons' is a time-lapse map of every nuclear explosion since 1945 by Japanesse artist Isao Hasimoto.

A thought provoking, undeniably scary and mesmerising data visualisation piece with 2053 nuclear explosions, which have taken place between 1945 and 1988. It starts really slow but if you can't wait and want to see some real screen action skip to 1962 onwards. I recommend watching it from beginning to end.
