Scrolling down your Tumblr dashboard can be both inspiring and terrifying. This week’s post is a little bit of both. Thanks to the amazing Tumblr blog thisisnthappiness, I came across some very chilling photographs by enigmatic designer Chiu Chih. Chih submitted the project “voyage on the planet” to digital magazine designboom, and it very much appeals to the “glamour of decay” ideal in modern imagery and narratives. It may seem very “sci-fi”, but we are at a time when we need to question our effect on the environment.
I will not lie, the first thing that came to mind when I first saw these was Pixar movie WALL·E. However, there is a much deeper explanation of the project here and you can also view the full set of images.
