Walking Towards The Rubicon Premium Poster
40.00 £ – 50.00 £
The Rubicon features 35 people walking towards an underwater wall, unaware that they are heading to a point of no return. They look down or look at their phones, in an almost dreamlike state, walking towards catastrophe, unable to take stock of our own impact on the natural world and therefore our own survival.
The wall stretches 30 meters long and 4 meters high and contains a single rectangular doorway at its centre. It is intended to be a monument to absurdity, a dysfunctional barrier in the middle of a vast fluid three-dimensional space, which can be bypassed in any direction. It emphasizes that the notions of ownership and territories are irrelevant to the natural world. In times of increasing patriotism and protectionism, the wall reminds us that we cannot segregate our oceans, air, climate or wildlife as we do our land and possessions. We forget we are all an integral part of a living system at our peril.
