Featured Art: Amnesia Atomica
Amnesia Atomica in Mexico City, February 2020
Bulletin president and CEO Rachel Bronson traveled to Mexico City February 13-15 to join renowned artist Pedro Reyes and the Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs in unveiling Amnesia Atomica, a three story inflatable mushroom cloud commissioned to “…raise public awareness, revitalize the once vibrant anti-nuclear community and most importantly put pressure on political leaders, policymakers and global citizens by reminding them of the consequences of inaction.”
In April 2020, Amnesia Atomica will travel with the Bulletin to New York City to draw public attention to the 50th anniversary of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).
About the Arts Science Initiative
Art and design can create change: The Doomsday Clock, one of the most iconic designs of the 20th Century, is an example of that.
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is in the early stages of bringing together art and science, artists and scientists.
The Bulletin will feature artists grappling with the challenges associated with science and technology, focusing specifically on nuclear risk, climate change and disruptive technologies (such as artificial intelligence, cyber security, and gene editing).
Our goal is to capture the public's imagination, spark citizen engagement, and encourage creative solutions to humanity's greatest threats.
