Figures staple and adhere various types of different textures, samples, and materials to boards to be tested against copious amounts of atmospheric radiation. This work is somewhat like a visual depiction of herd mentality. Those who dress alike, follow what is told to them, do the same duty, all lack the guilt of detrimental atmospheric harm and potential human devastation that is intrinsic to the testing and controversial use of the Atom bomb. “Baker-shot, minus one day” refers to the type of militarized jargon used to refer to this research conducted.
