Artwork of the Week: Black Ceremony

Because tomorrow is the Fourth of July, which is officially Independence Day in these United States and unofficially national pyrotechnic appreciation day across America, we bring you an image of daytime fireworks created by Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang. 

Staged in 2011 to open the artist's exhibition at the Arab Museum of Modern Art, these fleeting black puffs of smoke cast across a bright blue sky are almost the anti-firework. I rather like that.
