From John Brownlee’s story in Fast Company:
The mind has a difficult time wrapping itself around the notion that one day humankind will be extinct. Armageddon itself is easy to imagine, whether by nuclear fire, worldwide pandemics, zombie hordes, or death from above. The apocalypse, after all, is still a drama that plays out in the theater of man; it’s what happens when the actors have gone home and the theater is empty that is so hard to relate to. It is this empty theater that is the domain of Brooklyn-based artist Lori Nix, who imagines the barren buildings and empty set-pieces of the post-apocalypse in a stunning series of dioramas which have now been collected in her new book, The City.
