Following an exhibition of my cross stitch work I was invited to be part of another exhibition for digital artists based on “Retro-Futurism and The Future That Never Came”. These are two pieces for the show. The first is a satirical take on the retro futurism of the 20th century with its various influences and themes.

Building Our Future
The city scape and high rises are to show the grander of the period and hopes for becoming something great with theories that the space ship and blimp would still be in use in the future. Additionally the atom is to represent the drive for a science ‘miracle’ and the untapped world atomic energy could bring, but also a joke on an aspect often found in retro futuristic posters, that despite it not relating to the poster in anyway.

Neptune The Ocean City
This is the second in my satirical take on retro futurism using similar themes from the first, however focusing on a more oceanic setting which relates to the modern crowd and games such as Bioshock.
