Genesis

The relationship between mankind and Earth has recently evolved into an issue of power. In the face of a changing climate, we assume that our planet is at the mercy of humanity's agenda. But is that really the case? Can we really claim to have such definitive power over the Earth?


Genesis is an art installation that challenges this perceived dynamic. It tells a different story, one that focuses on Earth's future instead of ours. It begins by asking "what might the world look like after we're gone?" Genesis presents three speculative, narrative-driven depictions of a post-human Earth. But rather than playing into the dark, dead wastelands that we associate with humanity's wake, these landscapes are teeming with beauty and life, relentlessly inventing new versions of themselves as the human legacy fades away. It is a testament to Earth's natural resilience, and how, despite everything it faces today, our planet will find its beauty once more.


This is a digital mockup of the installation.
