IMAGE OF THE MONTH - END OF THE WORLD?
DIGITAL ART: NICK PEDERSEN
IN HIS NEW PROJECT, FLOATING WORLD, IS NICK PERDERSEN, A DIGITAL ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER, SHOWING THE IMPENDING FATE OF THE GLOBE?
FLOATING WORLD is an ongoing project exploring the impacts of climate change on the planet, and the issues of rise in sea level in coastal cities around the world. For this part of the series, Nick Pederson travelled to Miami, Florida to photograph all the source materials for his images, including different parts of the city, beaches and aquariums. He then digitally composited these images together to create a concept of a ‘picture-perfect’ postcard image of the city juxtaposed with a cross-section of the rising ocean. Does this look like the end of the world?
He is a photographer and digital artist based in Salt Lake City, Utah. He has shown artwork in galleries across the country and internationally, including the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Urban Arts Gallery, Paradigm Gallery, and Arch Enemy Arts.
