A dystopian view of the future, where colour has been eliminated, along with all sign of life. Large modernist buildings spike the surface, while a lonely astronaut is floating in the post-apocalyptic atmosphere, about to be sucked into a black hole.

This photomontage is about memory and nostalgia. Cinematic and romantic, places been and seen, a love won and lost. The original hand cut collage was created specially for Bare Bones exhibition at AIRspace Gallery, as a response to the poems of JR Waen.
