Start a Reaction

Between September 2020 and August 2021, a small cohort of curators, artists, and SAIC fellows set out to investigate the use of art and technology to address the threat of nuclear arms proliferation. The resulting project, Start a Reaction, consisted of site-specific interventions at Nuclear Energy Sculpture Plaza, the original location of Chicago Pile-1, as well as media and performance workshops with general audiences, activists, and leaders from the nuclear non-proliferation community.
