Stencilled colour, fly wire mesh and lead
56 x 41 centimeters

The concern about catastrophic climate change had not reached the contemporary level of public awareness when this collage was made even though scientists had issued warnings for decades.

In this collage, one possible future faced by humanity is visualised as a cataclysm of floods. A leaden figure kneels under a downpour as the water, indicated by the dark strips of insect mesh, rises around him. A thin background strip of colour represents vanishing clear skies.
