In this architectural scenario an oil tanker is raised like an obelisk into a pit. The carcass is than outfitted for whatever use its inhabitants see fit.
I find this image very appealing because of the symbolism of it colours and the graphical construction of its elements, ranging from order to mild chaos. And while it speaks to me in the darkened voice of environmental and social destruction, it also points to the end of carrying oil for this civilisation – literally and figuratively speaking.
