68 years ago today, at 8.15 am, the United States government committed an atrocity of almost unimaginable proportions, dropping an atomic weapon on the people of Hiroshima, Japan, without warning.
80,000 men women and children, young and old, were killed where they walked, sat and lay. Of those who weren’t killed instantly, another 60,000 would die of radiation poisoning by the end of that year.
95% of those killed were women, children and other non-combatants.
You can either call it Complexism or Networkism … where imaginary landscapes of interconnected entities are the prevailing theme.

jrartist: Just received this areal view from Kenya today! My team just finished installing 4000 meter square of images printed on vinyl to protect the roof of the community against the rain. This is not part of the art project Women Are Heroes we did 4 years ago and that is still visible on this image. Since 4 years we go back every year and that’s what you can see on this images.. the difference of black and white is due to how long they have been put up :) This is done with no autorisation except the one of the community and with no other financing than what we raise via my artworks… Congrats to @etienne @dabouski @takao5020 @seanheart for helping the 40 men on the ground who put it up for their neighberhood. As one women told.me.years ago in Kibera ” Art can be useful” :) #kenya #visiblefromgoogleearth (à Kibera, Kenya)
