A slippery surface warning sign is seen on "The History of Bombs" by Ai Weiwei following the first screening of the commissioned video installation "I Saw The World End", at the Imperial War Museum on August 06, 2020 in London, England. The film is made up of quotes from key figures in the story of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, from the original concept of building a nuclear bomb through to those who experienced the blast first hand. Originally due to be broadcast on the screens of Piccadilly Circus 75 years to the minute since the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the screening was moved online due to the recent explosion in Beirut.
