Additional Information This work represents for me the fragility of our planet.
The fear that one day everything could stop.
It reveals for me, the fear of a natural disaster or linked to human errors.
a meteorite, a nuclear explosion everything is possible.
An exciting idea and a great effect.
The design and the arrangement of the individual fragments are quite coherent and dynamic.
You actually get the impression of witnessing an explosion.
The indirect spot lighting at the point of impact reinforces this impression.
What bothers me is the strong contrast between the background and the foreground.
I think it's part of the idea. The title 'Last Day' also suggests that we are experiencing the end of an era.
While everything is still intact and alive in the foreground disaster approaches from the horizon.
Storytelling-wise this is a very bold and progressive piece of work.
As far as harmony and aesthetics are concerned however this is a double-edged sword.
It's O.K. I can live with the conflict but I still wanted to explain myself and give you my thoughts on this. I would be happy to have done some justice to you.
The movement and drama created were awesome.
Good space occupation and good balance between elements. Is clearly possible to understand the power-lines and the aquarium flow.
Excellent job this technique to represent an explosion maybe give the Most Innovative award.
