The explosive Ueli Alder Detonations series is deadly. Created by Swiss artist Ueli Alder, the series is luckily made up of images found on the Internet. However, the Photoshopped collages of explosions still manage to be incredibly badass and terrifying. Adler’s inspiration for the series were war-themed video games, as he attempts to romanticize the cataclysmic detonations that go off during game play.

The falsified images from the Ueli Alder Detonations series creates an important critique on the over-sensationalized and commonality of these graphic images found throughout popular culture. Our reactions to these images tend to demonstrate the hyperreality that has been created by explosive media, which can contribute to causing a problematic way of how humans filter through future events.
