This work about the atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki explores human collective remembrance of those events through art, and examines the human condition. The author explores the communal memory of humanity and its relationship to horror and violence in an age where images can travel vast distances quickly. She ponders whether horrific images can desensitize people, and provides a perspective on art as an act of witnessing.
