Mural Goes Up At Nuclear Reactor Lab

Happy to report we installed a blown interior mural project at the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor. The murals line the main walls and greet employees and visitors of the Radiation Science and Engineering Center. The 8’x8′ hallmark nuclear reactor core mural is on display once entering the restricted space and makes for a fun selfie moment. I believe this is the only photograph of a nuclear reactor pulsing to date. The process that underwent to capture this image is worthy of it’s own post. But will share that I sat on top of the reactor while they pulsed it for me approximately 16 times. The image shows the core fully energized. There is approximately 71 thousand gallons of swirling water in the reactor, so getting the clarity in this image took a trick or two, but at time of capture and not in photoshop. BLACK SUN was responsible for all pre-production, design and installation for Penn State.

All the design direction and work is mine and was really pleasurable to produce.
