"1945-1998" [ctbto.org] by Isao Hashimoto (2003) displays all the 2,053 nuclear explosions and tests conducted in various parts of the globe, over time. The year and month are shown at the top right corner. Each detonation is flashed on a stylized world map, accompanied by a minimalistic computer sound. The years roll by at one month per second.

What starts of as a slow succession of a few blimps, rapidly becomes a display of fireworks.

Watch the movie below.

Reminds me of Breathing Earth.
