The last man on Earth

Sculpture/object, 2019

Concrete and dust collected from urban sites.


The work is inspired by the book Last and First Men, a scientific novel written in 1930 by the British writer Olaf Stapledon. The book describes the Earth two billion years ahead of us when a future race of humans is on the verge of extinction. Almost all that remains in the world are solitary and surreal concrete monuments, transmitting their message to the desert, witnessing the collision between notions of time, history, and oblivion.
