People will disappear, and Nature will take everything back. The series consists of three canvases of different sizes, which depict people in the strangest places, once full of the energy of civilization, and now captured by nature. An empty, mysterious swimming pool, a tram standing on a dead track in the middle of the jungle, a fire hydrant in the desert, from which a small, muddy stream of water flows. Here a man walks and wanders: resting on a chaise longue, eating ice cream, tidying up an old hydrant. But this man is no longer a man at all: he has no face, and because of this we can not see what he dreams, what he thinks, what he feels. More often, this person wears a mask of the beast on his head. He becomes an integral part of this new world, as a single living being, abandoned by technology and captured back by Mother Nature. Is this world born for the first time or anew, if the latter is both our start and our finish?
