pyrotechnics

Fireworks in broad daylight in Qatar:

Dubbed “Black Ceremony” this contemporary art is the work of Cai Guo-Qiang, a Chinese national based in New York City and the world’s foremost gunpowder artist.

They used anti-missile decoys used by the military to create the display.

Using 8,000 shells and two months of planning, the exhibit lasted a matter of minutes.

You know what likely would have been cooler?  If they did this at night so you saw the explosions, and then kept turning on massive floodlights aimed at the sky so you could see the colored smoke patterns.

Cooler yet: Rather than patterns, make shapes and spell words that the crowd can see.
