From the Youtube description:

At the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar this week, Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang put on his largest "explosion event" of the last three years, utilizing microchip-controlled explosives to form incredible designs and patterns. The video we've embedded of the event is an impressive testament to how a volatile black powder explosion can be controlled and shaped by computer. 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."

And now for your daily dose of "let's blow something up and watch how high it goes."

You're welcome.

A fireworks festival at Oban in Scotland went awry, releasing the entire load of explosives (meant for a half hour long show) at once. So, minus one very nice well-produced fireworks show. Plus one "Minute-long-spark-and-boom Party".

These photographs are from Alan Salier, who uses a laser-activated flash system to capture these impacts from an air rifle just as they hit the target. The photos are often violent in their subtext, but with a bizarre hint of playfulness from the "targets" Salier chooses to shoot. Check out more in the gallery below!
