KA-BLAM! A History of Apocalyptic Art

"Nature Takes over" by M-fly. Urban ruins don't always have to be depicted as lifeless. As Ian Malcolm says in Jurassic Park (the novel), "The planet is not in jeopardy. We are in jeopardy. We haven't got the power to destroy the planet, or to save it. But we might have the power to save ourselves." Pieces like this remind us that even if humanity is wiped out, new lifeforms will evolve and take over our remains.
