Daytime Firework Art Show

At the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar this week, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang turned daytime fireworks into an expression of art by utilizing microchip-controlled explosives to form incredible designs and patterns. Each set of explosions was calculated to paint a different picture. One series of explosions created black smoke clouds that looked like “drops of ink splattered across the sky.” In another, 8,300 shells embedded with computer microchips exploded in a pyramid shape over the desert.
