"Wichitsongkram Street" (威奇宋卡拉姆街)
"Wichitsongkram Street" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
I’ve always wondered what the end of the world would look like from my window. The more I was looking at the street and the passing cars, the infinite-looking busy cities and its weirdos, the more I thought this wouldn’t go on forever. Every noodle has its end. It could be a long-awaited Judgment Day, or we could all die in a scientifically well explainable manner. Self-proclaimed Media Messiahs predict it every year, whether it be an alien spaceship coming behind a comet or a computer virus that is supposed to destroy civilization in 2000, 2012, 2018… But they are all wrong. I am right. I’m always right in different ways, depending on the view. One of my windows looks out to the West, one to the East. Sometimes I look out to see the mountains and people who fear of the earth. I see oceans and great floods. I see deserts and a barren future. But when I feel out of character, the Sun comes up and reminds me to hit the next level.
