/ After Earth

Created in 2009 this series of two images explores a possible future, as our planet comes to an end. The images are designed to illustrate two double-page spreads in a magazine's feature article. The first depicts a planet undergoing terraforming, the process of making a planet habitable: perhaps by altering the chemical composition of the atmosphere, and synthesising molecules such as water from elements already present. The second image shows future scientists analysing Earth in the final throes of it's life. As the Sun expands and the planet grows hotter the core eventually explodes causing a dramatic spectacle for a species which has long since departed its home world.
