The End of Eternity project is dedicated to attempts to depict the Future. Not to describe (as philosophers and futurologists have done), but to present it as an image, that is, literally "draw". A certain artist, supposedly friends with Ossip Kurt Flechtheim (the German scientist who first used the term "futurology" at the height of World War II) draws illustrations for his book "Futurologie. Der Kampf um die Zukunft" (in German) at the request of the author. We encounter the same book again in the distant future, where a robot bibliographer finds it in a huge digital repository. He also decides to illustrate this book with his own drawings.
The artist combines different types of mapping the world, examining the traces of the border demarcation an imaginary landscape. Chorography method produces of the Earth images stylistics, fringed illusory boundaries or natural formations. The picturesque landscape is a representation of the landscape areas, snatched vision: the viewer's eye moving over the surface of ecumene and clinging to the illusion of the isometric, the geological sections, trying to cover the totality of the various theories about the Earth.
The photos show in this Phenomenology project man running from a technogenic city, returning to the poetry of the natural world. For a moment his face dissolves, and the purity of nature, he becomes a foreign body. «When I look at the landscape, I draw his eyes, fluids, smells. I reflected in his pupils, as in a mirror. I see a madman; he is like a branch, like a hill, as the evaporation of water vapor, just as deep breathing space that becomes a living person. Landscape talking to me through the impersonal man. I absorb vibrating air landscape, I like to see how his veins pulsate".
