Title: _Captain's_Log_02_2022

Assemblage sculpture with recycled and repurposed materials
21x15.5x10in.

Created inside a plastic toolbox this artwork is an imaginative representation of a spaceship's Captain time travelling in the Earth during the beginning of 2022.
The world was recovering from COVID with various events taking place: astronauts getting ready for space travel and even dinosaurs riding bikes enjoying a good time. The season was changing as expected and life on Earth was looking up.

However, this peace is short-lived: a wanna-be emperor decides to delete a country (Ukraine) from the world map and unleashes a barrage of bombs, weapons, and missiles, resulting in widespread destruction, death, and displacement of the people who lived there. 
The world was already grappling with the aftermath of the pandemic and space debris, and this conflict only added to the chaos.

Yet, an event similar to Deus-Ex-Machina may have occurred and the world eventually returned to a state of normalcy.
But the time traveller - who was far away from Earth in another corner of the universe - just guesses, he doesn't know the outcome for sure.

The Earth was coming back to normal, after a long time.
The astronauts were getting in shape,
our ships were reaching the skies again,
the big cats were well getting good care at their sanctuary,
and even the dinosaurs were getting fun riding their bikes!
The season were changing according to the plan… yes.

Until a wanna be emperor (the one who has no clothes)
decided to take a crazy turn and delete a country out from the world map.
“This country doesn’t exist, he said. Neither their people.”
Bombs, weapons, missiles were used.
Internet surveillance, media control, data hacking.

Destruction.
Shelling, sirenes, deaths & exile of people who lived over there.
Meanwhile the planet Earth was dealing with the end of pandemics
and space debris all around her!

In the end, they told me, an event similar to Deus-Ex-Machina
happened and everything was solved for the good.

I don’t know.
At that time I was already in another corner of the Universe…
