As the world turns...

Several years ago, I was asked to create a body of work that responded to the publication, ‘The Drowned World’ by J.G. Ballard. This 1962 science fiction novel tells the tale of a post-apocalyptic future in which global warming rendered much of the Earth's surface uninhabitable, with a small human population having retreated to the now-subtropical poles. These outposts became the last stand, where species (including humanity) moved to escape high temperatures.

The series, As the world turns… finds its roots in Ballard’s predictions.
