"1945-1998" by Isao Hashimoto (Japan, © 2003)
An animated history of nuclear testing in which each month is a second. (When you get to 1985, notice the Soviet test moratorum imposed by Mikhail Gorbachev. It goes by quickly; the moratorim ended in February, 1987.) The creator, Isao Hashimoto, has said:
"This piece of work is a bird's eye view of the history by scaling down a month length of time into one second. No letter is used for equal messaging to all viewers without language barrier. The blinking light, sound and the numbers on the world map show when, where and how many experiments each country have conducted. I created this work for the means of an interface to the people who are yet to know of the extremely grave, but present problem of the world."
On nuclear testing, we've been there, done that.
