If art is something that we cannot stop demanding to overpower us, or to transcend human knowledge and death, perhaps the new suns unveiled by thermonuclear bombs are some extreme realization of this demand-even if this is something that leaves an unremovable curse on the earth. There is a heavenly image of a nuclear cloud captured from way up in the sky. There is another image of deformed bodies piled on the ground of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This is my impossible journey in search of new monuments to connect two images separated by an unbridgeable divide between extreme beauty and extreme ugliness.
