THE TRUTH BOOTH


Nuclear Sud
Public sculpture/fountain
2009 – 13

Taken from the book Bomb Squads, the image is described as "A dense foam barrier over a nuclear bomb. It is designed to contain the radioactive debris and fragments in case the bomb detonates." Considering this seemingly futile way to prevent a nuclear detonation, coupled with the frequent prank of pouring washing up liquid or dishwashing soap into traditional fountains to produce an overflowing foam affect, I propose to create a permanent fountain of foam based accuratley on the image.
