This Is What Daytime Fireworks Look Like


We’ve all seen fireworks at night, but what about on a sunny afternoon? At the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang put on one of his largest explosion events ever, 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.
