Daytime Firework Displays?

Normally the one thing you most definitely need in order for your firework displays to go off with a bang is darkness. Or so you’d think... Daytime fireworks are not as uncommon as you’d think, and for those in the know it’s no big shock they are available. However the world famous Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang has come up trumps again and turned your standard daytime firework display into an explosive expression of art.

Microchipped controlled explosives were used to form breath-taking patterns and designs; each set calculated to paint a different picture in the bright blue sky. As well as the surprisingly bright colours on show ones series of fireworks created smoke clouds which looked like ink drops floating through the sky. On of the more impressive effects were the 8,300 microchipped shells which exploded to form the shape of a pyramid over the dessert.

Filmed in the grounds of the Arab Museum of Modern Art in Doha, Qatar, we’re pleased to bring you the video so you can see his day time firework display in all it’s glory...
