Details:ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Dark Archive is the title of a forthcoming book the artist is working on about archives, photography, the intersection of technology, destruction, and image-making, scientific research and discovery as a means of producing extraordinary photographs, and, as the artist states "how violence and ruin are at the root of everything, even sometimes arresting beauty". The project is a continuation of two major series - Bomb After Bomb: A Violent Cartography and After Hiroshima. Dark Archive focuses on and utilizes the Caltech Archive to demonstrate how Caltech was a significant site for the production of weapons of mass destruction, among many other things. The detonators for Little Boy and Fat Man, the A-bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, were, in part, developed at Caltech. Many Caltech scientists worked for the Manhattan Project - Robert Oppenheimer, Robert Christy, and Robert Bacher.
The exhibition includes collages on archival Sky Atlas photographs using Caltech materials only; 528 chemical drawings of nuclear tests on outdated paper (there have been 528 atmospheric/above-ground nuclear tests in total); silver gelatin photographs from archival negatives, transparencies and glass lantern slides; cyanotypes of objects in the Caltech archives; a 3D printed sculpture of a bottle melted from the heat of the A-bomb from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Musem; and a book (in-progress).
The exhibition includes selections from the Caltech work, as well as selections from After Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima, Bomb After Bomb, and other works related to the nuclear, radiation, the archive, photography, and survival.
