A collage depicting a fantastical landscape with some real elements, like the Pyramids of Giza or the St. Louis arch, mixed together with imaginary 3D-rendered gemoetrical structures, with the backdrop receding into salt ponds and an orange sky through which people are flying using Leonardo da Vinci's proposed flying device.


After all, individual stories of totality were still in place and even if no single grand idea was feasible, the great intensity—the Hauptstrom, as Beuys called it—the grand idea was still essential to energize society.
–Hans-Joachim Müller, Harald Szeemann, Exhibition-Maker

An homage to utopian thought, this collage includes a NASA image of Mars, one of Leonardo's flying machines, the pyramids of Giza, an inverted image of Luis Barragan's Torres de Satélite, Tatlin's Monument to the Third International, towers from the Ivanpah solar facility, an illustration of New Harmony, a Mars vehicle from a NASA illustration, salt flats in Utah, the Gateway Arch, the Futuro House, buildings from Brasilia, the Stanford Dish, the Morcom Amphitheater of Roses, and some imaginary things I modeled in 3D.
