Let’s start 2013 with something of a roundup. A quick reality check, refresh and splash of Eau de toilette.
What we have here then is a brief sampler straight from the Sci-Fi-O-Rama barometer, a long-awaited update on a selection of the finest, past featured contemporary artists.
A lonely, fragile explorer traversing a world of cold desolation…
These spectacular landscapes are the work of French Artist/Photographer Vincent Fournier, taken from his “Space Project” Series. I’m not sure on the exact location here but this type of arid terrain is known as ‘Badlands’ or simply ‘Badland’, basically a landform created by the wind/water erosion of soft sedimentary rocks and clay-rich soils. Often this occurs in flash flooding when a years precipitation happens overnight.
Famous Badlands include: Hell’s Half Acre (Wyoming USA, used as a location for the 1997 movie Starship Troopers), Bardenas Reales (Navarre, Spain) and New Zealands Putangirua Pinnacles.
