An empty astronaut suit drifts across the galaxy in a red convertible Tesla.
A backcountry hiker lingers on the trail in the Blue Ridge Mountains watching the Brown Mountain lights flicker.
A group of Scientists try to conquer and control nature while sealed inside Biosphere 2.
A Yoga Guru climbs to the top of Cathedral Rock to get lost in an Energy Vortex.
UFO chasers anxiously await the sun to set and witness the Marfa lights in the distance.
A team of Documentary filmmakers board a boat and set sail to the Plastic Island in the Pacific Ocean.
These are realties where humans chase the unknown, explore the depths of space (ocean and outer), and face the monsters that haunt them (mental and physical).
These artists use nature imagery and science fiction with deep sensory materials that trigger an emotional reaction. A common thread I see between these artist work is an anticipation of time passing with some hope for a reconstructed future where new biologies and organisms live past technology on the other side of human existence.
