Starting October 19, six of my illustrations will be on display at the 4th annual Doomsday Film Festival and Symposium, presented by 92Y TriBeCa. To kick off the exhibit, the opening night will feature a dinner and discussion about Michel de Nostredame, one of the most well-known prophets of doom, followed by a panel and a pre-screening of the film, Zardoz. The film festival will run throughout the weekend and the art exhibit will be on display through December 21. To read the press release, click here: Doomsday Press Release.
My six illustrations are from a project I worked on earlier this year, where I researched and forecasted the future of biohumanism and geoengineering in the year 2050. I painted several illustrations that exhibited future fashions humans and cyborgs would need to wear in order to protect themselves from catastrophic events like orbital debris and sulfate fall-outs. I created 10 illustrations in total, representing various plausible and provocative future scenarios.
