[From the artists]
The ATOMIC bomb changed the Japanese people forever.
8-bit console games are a loving part of Japan's POP culture nowadays.
I felt that both the atomic bomb and the 8-bit consoles are powerful symbols of 20th century's civilization, at least as experienced by the Japanese people.
And, so, POP ATOMIC was born.
Enjoy it. Arigato^^ -Mikati Slade (Japan)
Mikati has been a long-time business partner and friend.
She talked to me about her concept for this year's Burn2 event.
I loved it and asked her if she needed any help.
Luckily she did and I contributed my part :) -Emily Lang(Greece)
