This project when completed will map all 2054 nuclear test sites. It is expected that this project may not be finished in the artists lifetime. As of September 2017, this official number of Nuclear Test sites may need to be revised upwards.


The first thirteen were been shown in UCD College of Science and Untitled, MIAMI 2016 with balzer projects.


Future Proof in the LAB in Dublin is currently showing the first 29 Maps. The 29 maps here cover the period from 16 July 1945 to 3 October 1952.

The majority of these are American, with 3 Russian and the first British Test at number map 29 (off Australia).

There was a Nuclear treaty testing ban bought in in 1996, however it was not signed by all the countries and tests continued to go ahead in India and Pakistan. 

When this project began in 2015/2016 it was a legacy project looking at Radionuclides in the Environment and the fallout to have impacted everyday life. Since then however it has unfortunately again turned into a live issue (2017).
