Decor (Photoinstallation) by Johanna Mårtensson
2012 - 2013, Platinum A' Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design Award Winner
I was inspired by an article about how well the earth would do without us. Within 500 years all buildings would be half fallen or fallen, perfect homes for animals and plants. The forrest would soon grow in cities. After hand buildings aswell as pollutions would be taken care of by bacterias and micro-organisms. An ufo that came here in a couple of of hundred thousand years would not see many signs of that a gang of primates ones thought that they where the lords of the planet.
In a model building I wanted to give thoughts around the reality, that we consider ours and look at it as a scenography to an imagined scenario. A scenario by nature occasional and perishable. What is behind it or what will happen when the decor moulds might not be a coming apocalypse but the creation of a new process. Not without humor I wanted to give another picture of what might happen when the show is over.

Production Technology
I created a a city scape with modell houses that I made out of bread. I let it stand for 6 month and photographed it every day. The photographs shows the molding process.
