44.4 Seconds

44.4 Seconds examines the last moments when - to paraphrase US President Truman - the Universe was the sole guardian of its own power. It is the time of fall between the Hiroshima atomic bomb being released from its parent B29 bomber and reaching its point of detonation. Lead, cast from wood and paper, confers a solemnity to events that impede reasoned conclusions, challenge dogma, and serve as a transcendent symbol for human frailty. Zagreb 2012
