Summary
"Paradise Lost is about nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands conducted by the US in the 40's and 50's. It focuses on the first two explosions on Bikini Atoll in 1946. The Bikinians were told that testing the bomb was essential to prevent future wars. They had no way of knowing that they would not be able to return to their island, and how greatly their lives would be affected by the tests. Bikini is still deemed unsafe for their return. The tests also exposed large numbers of service members to dangerous levels of radiation -- the first of our atomic veterans. Many of these sailors spent much of their lives in treatment for diseases related to their exposure"--Artist's statement
