The Evolution of Silence proposal —The Last Nuclear Bomb Memorial

2021, Drawing, digital collage, archival ink jet print, 16.54 x 23.39 inches (A2)

The Evolution of Silence—my proposal for The Last Nuclear Bomb Memorial in the decommissioned nuclear testing site, Yucca Flat (Nevada Test Site)—is not a careful site, not singular, not clean—it is emotional, entangled, absurd, unfathomable, a path of perspective.

I combined several drawings to render a confounded walking path—one that takes you in and around but not to a single crater and sometimes to the in -between spaces between craters—so to acknowledge the damage that is visible and invisible, and also to emphasize the scale of war and its impact. www.evolution-of-silence.net.
