Manhattan Project Revisited

Video HD, sound

Manhattan Project Revisited is a digital reconstruction of The Manhattan Project, where the first atomic bomb was created. Recreating structures from its three main sites: Los Alamos, New Mexico; Oak Ridge, Tennessee; and Hanford, Washington, this work blends fact and fiction to evoke an emotive experience, reminding us that the existential threat of nuclear war is still a present danger. Transporting viewers into the architecture of the 1940s, it commemorates the many thousands of lives lost in Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and 9th, 1945. Original soundtrack by Philippe Lauzier.
