Necessity

Edition of 10

Before elevators, climbing trees or hiking mountains were the only ways to see the world at large. Before conveyor belts and tarmac highways we felt grass beneath our feet. We progress with technologies provisions, but despite our wires and our networks we’ve lost contact with the bare necessities of life.

Where previous works in the Citysphere series depicted the urban sprawl, ‘Necessity’ turns its attention to the rural sprawl, and performs the wonderful resilience of the natural world. It reminds us that to ensure a fruitful life for all, seeds must be planted, and our biodiverse ecosystems preserved. The unquestionable beauty of nature is a necessary yin to our vast industrial yang – and we mustn’t forget what this planet was before we called it earth.
