Grishenko Sketches – Variations: Part 6

(Source: Wikipedia) “A large amount of energy was suddenly released, vaporising superheated cooling water and rupturing the reactor core in a highly destructive steam explosion. This was immediately followed by an open-air reactor core fire that released considerable airborne radioactive contamination for about nine days that precipitated onto parts of the USSR and western Europe, especially Belarus, 16km away, where around 70% landed,[5] before being finally contained on 4 May 1986.[6][7] The fire gradually released about the same amount of contamination as the initial explosion.[8] As a result of rising ambient radiation levels off-site, a 10-kilometre (6.2 mi) radius exclusion zone was created 36 hours after the accident. About 49,000 people were evacuated from the area, primarily from Pripyat. The exclusion zone was later increased to 30 kilometres (19 mi) radius when a further 68,000 people were evacuated from the wider area.”

From the book of Grishenko. Du Livre de Grishenko – Sketchbook/Esquisses Variations: Part 5 / 5.ième partie. Concept artwork for the Grishenko graphic works project. Art conceptuel conçu pour l’ouvrage graphique Grishenko. All works are based on scanned original drawings and sketches, then re-worked using 2d digital filters and tools. Toutes les oeuvres ont été créées à partir de dessins et esquisses originaux, numérisés et modifiés à l’aide de filtres et outils 2d numériques.Many thanks to the folks at / Un gros remerciement aux gens chez FilterForge
