Atomic is a poetic journey, which tells the story of one particular jewel. The jewel was commissioned by the US army in 1945. The ornamental stone is radioactive Trinitite, which was born as a side product of the first nuclear test in New Mexico. In this small object merge total violence, beauty, precious, sublime ja particular materials and human incompleteness.
