Wow. One of my favorite artists, Cai Guo-Qiang, sure knows his way around controlled explosions. Would love to see this in person. Last time I was anywhere near one of his cloud projects, was when he did clear sky black cloud at the Met in NYC. I love what he is doing with these outdoor “installations” so visceral. But really all of his projects are amazing whether they are inside or out.
Black Ceremony was part of the opening of an exhibit in Qatar
Check out more info here. This is his first exhibition in the middle east, it goes on until may, 2012, its a great excuse to make a trip to Qatar.
