A large-scale installation – ensemble of ceramic lamps in the shape of the atomic bomb „Little Boy” that was dropped by the Americans on Hiroshima on August the 6th, 1945. The entire surface of the objects making up the installation is covered with hundreds of thousands of holes, visible only up close, made as a single puncture in the still fresh ceramics and fixed by firing. Symbolically they refer to the number of victims of the atomic explosion. The title stems from fear that the energy of atom will be used again in a military conflict. Nowadays nine countries have atomic weapons.
