Blocking The Exits

Blocking the Exits speculates about an increasingly dystopic vision of our future, as expressed through popular film, comics and literature. These works of fiction reflect real conflicts and tensions including environmental collapse, disaster and war. The work depicts an apocalyptic world where four characters have the final experience of crumbling pillars of civilization: water, food, energy and communication. This dynamically-edited, single-channel animation is comprised entirely of still photographs that have been animated through morphing software. Blocking the Exits is also a series of full-resolution photographs.
