"...Hiroshima, the shadows of Hiroshima in the desert of the atomic catastrophe, terrible evidence, without a doubt, but evidence of hope all the same, hope for the survival and permanence, albeit immaterial, of the flesh."
Yves Klein, excerpt from "Truth becomes reality", 1960
This work alludes to the few "shadows" that bodies disintegrated by atomic light have left on the walls of the city.
