FROM ANIMAL FARM TO BIKINI ATOLL (1995)

The bikini was designed by Louis Reard, a French engineer, and named after Bikini Atoll, the site of the first peacetime atomic bomb test in July 1946.  The  belly button in this installation is an atomic bomb explosion.  As the artist, Todd Ayoung, writes, This piece puts some of the history of war back into the discussion of nuclear technology–the how we got where we are today with Atomic Energy.
