The title of the installation was Robert Oppenheimer’s post-war recollection of the first atomic blast at Alamogordo in the spring of 1945. A confrontation of the scientist’s testimony, a 700kg multi chamber crystal geode and stories of the last days of death row inmates was intended to tackle notions of change, time and contingency. The installation (especially the geode) was to be touched, heard and sensed.
