"I am distressed by the fate of my brother Atlas, who, towards the west, stands bearing on his shoulders the pillar of heaven and earth, a burden not easy for his arms to grasp." - Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound
I wanted to portray the present state of decay of our world and I've found no better inspiration for the globe peeling away to reveal a skull, but in the form of Michel Granger's artwork for Jean-Michel Jarre's 1976 album Oxygène. I was falling asleep to this album almost every night as a kid in the '90s and that image (and music) stuck with me ever since.
“We must not kill the planet, we would not know where to bury it…” - Michel Granger
