Over seven decades have passed since a city was destroyed by a nuclear weapon, but the danger never went away. We are now confronted with a world in which nine nations possess roughly 15,000 nuclear weapons. Yet, most people have never seen a nuclear weapon.
“JUST THE TIP” is a photograph series that focuses on the ultimate seduction of the machine. It’s about the immense power of nuclear weapons, their ingenious construct and haunting beauty.
Smriti Keshari is best known for her acclaimed multi-media installation, the bomb, which was heralded as “a stunning, avant-garde approach to a plea for nuclear disarmament.”
She is an Indian-American director and artist whose work covers a spectrum of the moving image from traditional, linear filmmaking to art installations. She brings an experimental approach to exploring under-represented themes and experiences outside the mainstream, which spark social dialogue.
