When talking about artifacts, we may think that they are found in destroyed civilizations. I want to send a warning that if the climate crisis continues to worsen, then a future of destruction may await humanity, followed by other civilizations researching our suicide today. In the bottom there is a scene of water burial, which represent life and death, and a metaphor for Atlantis. It suggests the danger of rising sea levels. Above the dark, stony clouds is a burning sun, representing alternating extreme weather. The plastic mannequins represent societal issues. The desires of chasing our own profit make human beings to develop at the expense of the environment. There is nothing about judgment, because we all involved in these interlocking gears, but at the same time, the environmental problem is so urgent. I want to express it such a contrast.
