Many scientists around the world are now warning that we are at the threshold of stopping global warming. Therefore, through the poster, I wanted to give a sense of crisis that our home might sink below sea level in the near future if we do not act now.
Inspired by the story of an ancient city that sank into the sea and disappeared, the poster depicts the burial of the city of 2021. I tried to visualize the content that at some point in the near future, our living-space may disappear forever like ancient cities. I also left a clearer message trough the text, "Act now or swim later."
At first glance, it looks just like any other peaceful landscape, but the city we live in is submerged in the sea, and my professor said he felt a sense of crisis when he saw a person leisurely swimming there. He also commented that if we do not act now, we or our descendants will suffer like what the poster is showing.
