Morris Vogel | Watching the World Burn

(für deutsch weiterscrollen)

The fate of the world lies in the hands of psychopaths. Empty souls on the prowl for ever more destruction to satisfy their greed. Never content, they seek out every last corner of the earth. Spreading like cancer, unwilling to stop until the host has perished. This ecocide is justified by the all-encompassing myth of progress and we continue sustaining the unsustainable. 

Having been relegated to the role of consumers, we passively watch the tragedy unfold from behind our screens. Collective madness clouds our minds, while the echo chambers of social media blur the thin line between truth and illusion. Addicted to the all-encompassing spectacle, we are complicit to our own oppression.

Words cannot do this catastrophe justice, which is why I have tried to do so using images, a universal language.
