Cities in Dust…both in bread & music form

Posted: May 31, 2013 in Soundtrack, Without Us

Theater Set Designer  Johanna Mårtensson decided to create a living demonstration of how cities would look decaying without man. She used bread to build the cities then over the course of six months, took a photo each day. This is what it looks like:

Her artists statement reads: Within 500 years all buildings would be half-fallen or fallen, perfect homes for animals and plants. The forest would soon grow in cities. Afterhand, buildings as well as pollutions would be taken care of by bacteria and micro-organisms. A UFO that came here in a couple of hundred thousand years would not see many signs that a gang of primates once thought that they were the lords of the planet.


And the way my brain works, I had to add music…
