A material exploration into how our world may look following a nuclear apocalypse. Conveying changed landscapes in the aftermath of nuclear fallout, toxic smoke and depleting resources. Deathtopia is a further look at the Anthropocene; the proposed term for the epoch when human activities had a global impact on the Earth.
A collection of hard and soft surfaces that show the mixing and meeting of natural, marbled surfaces with plastics, metals and waste.Bolted and stacked to form the future geological records following radioactive fallout and the reckless hand of the human. The surfaces combine techniques in laser etching, resin work and concrete pigmentation. The accompanying fabrics are created predominantly with sublimation print techniques, both digitally created and hand painted. The materials throughout echo the futuristic style and the fallout devastation creating a hostile landscape.
Optical fibres push through surfaces like the emergence of radiation exposed flora. Protruding and trapped plastics, unearthed from the waste piles in the local scrap store are representative of the identifiable fossils for future generations to discover.
