Swedish artist Johanna Mårtensson built a miniature city out of bread and then photographed it as it slowly decomposed over six months for her 2009 photo installation “Decor”. According to Mårtensson, she was inspired to create the project after reading an article about how well the earth would do without humanity.
In a model building I fantasized around the reality, that we consider ours and looked at it as a scenography to a fictional scenario. A scenario by nature occasional and perishable. What is behind it or what will happen when the decor moulds might not be a coming apocalypse but the creation of a new process.
