The End of the Age of Turtles

Print on silk

90 x 90 cm


Living inside a turtle It might sound like a joke. However, to think about it, maybe this would not be the worst situation for humans. My collection consists of scenarios of how the future world could be, based on the fact that a lot of areas are over-industrialised, neglecting the environmental problems and demolishing cultural heritage sites.
