The End of the World 2012
Cyanotype on silk, Pinhole camera photo 2012.
Predictions of the end of the world have followed humanity for a very long time. This year, 2012, many think that the apocalypse is going to happen, at least if you trust interpretations of the Mayan calendar. There are endless possibilities: earthquakes, geomagnetic reversal, meteorites, planets on the wrong path, not to mention global warming or a new ice age. Sanna Fogelvik and Lena Källberg have taken the apocalypse to their heart, and express both horror and fascination for it, as well as a little bit of humour, through photography, three-dimensional works and drawings.
