This image is from my Abandoned Pittsburgh photography project, documenting the Steel City's industrial past. Each print is signed, dated and identified on the back.

"Westinghouse Atom Smasher" on wood (maple/birch composite), printed by ink sublimation. 11” width, 14" height. The natural tones and grain of the wood combine with the image to create a unique and durable work of art. Wood prints are 3/4” thick and arrive ready to hang without needing a frame; the backing keyhole allows the artwork to hang flat against the wall.

The worldʼs first industrial atom smasher was built in Forest Hills (Pittsburgh) in 1937 by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation. Standing four stories high, the van de Graaff particle accelerator created nuclear reactions by blasting target atoms with high-energy particles that accelerated down a vacuum tube at 100 million miles per hour to a pressure vessel 47 feet below. The discovery of the photo-fission of uranium was spurred by research done at this facility in the 1940s. The plant was closed in 1958.
