Artist Cai Guo-Qiang explores the almost supernatural relationship between time and space with his beautiful and dangerous medium, gunpowder. He manipulates nature and physics by creating tiny (and sometimes not so tiny) controlled explosions that erupt in excited flares or unfurl like the new petals of a peony. His installations, or gunpowder drawings, sculpt energy in an instant and carve a new form of cosmic consciousness from the negative space of their after-explosion.
