COLONIZED — Modeling Post-Human Architecture

Milan-based artist and ad man Daniele Del Nero’s series of photographs and models, titled After Effects, is comprised of architectural models constructed out of black paper, dampness, flour, patience, and mold. According to Del Nero’s artist statement: “My purpose is to talk about the sense of time and destiny of the planet after the human species, through the sense of restlessness which abandoned buildings are able to communicate.” It’s all very “There Will Come Soft Rains” and, well, it’s downright pleasant to meditate on organic decay and technological loneliness when gazing at Del Nero’s post-human scale models via the snaky wires.
