At the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang put on his largest “explosion event” of the last three years, utilizing microchip-controlled explosives to form incredible designs and patterns. This event is an impressive testament to how a volatile black powder explosion can be controlled and shaped by computer. Each set of explosions was calculated to paint a different picture. One series of explosions created black smoke clouds that looked like “drops of ink splattered across the sky.” In another, 8,300 shells embedded with computer microchips exploded in a pyramid shape over the desert.

Explosion event created by artist Cai Guo-Qiang for the opening of The Ninth Wave in Shanghai, 2014, using biodegradable colored powders. It contains three chapters: Elegy, Remembrance, and Consolation.

This is oddly satisfying.
