About the Book
I took an image of a nuclear explosion and cut out the section with the fire and the smoke. This I then chopped up into little squares and composed the orange cloud through the book like a very simple jigsaw puzzle. Unlike the fire, the palm trees are always occupy the entire page. They have also been cut out of the same image. They are only details, but we can see that soon very little will remain of them. I wanted the book to be viewed like one would watch a film.
