Implosion: “a phenomenon accompanying the break- down of a prevailingly depressive enclosure”… A transition between one state and another, from existence to nothingness, the implosion is an interval which marks the end of a condition. A cloud of heterogeneous debris sweeps over the suburbs.* Modern day Pompei takes on the form of a blazing cloud. This magnificent blast announces the moment at which a world is destroyed. For a few moments, the formal perfection of the clouds and the dissolution of the principal solids, demonstrates the most perfect illustration of euthenics.
