The Bomb Project

From Rhizome Artbase

The Bomb Project is the result of online image research initially done for
a series of paintings of Cold War era U.S. nuclear tests. It went online
in rudimentary form in Spring 2000, and has gradually been upgraded and
organized into a comprehensive compendium of nuclear-related links. The
Bomb Project is intended specifically as a resource for artists working
in all media, from, film and video, eco-intervention and
site-specific installation, to more traditional forms of art and
agitprop. It includes raw material, such as still and moving declassified
imagery, as well as government documents and treaties, divergent claims,
political opinion, and a news feed with links to articles and current
events. It offers both the industry's and alternative/activist points of
view, as well as original declassified files and graphic documentation
produced by the nuclear industry itself, providing a context for
comparative study, analysis and creativity.
