Forbidden Urban Structures

The experiences and images of my past influence how I see what I see as a possible future. This can be my own understanding of a personal future as well the collective future of all of mankind. Timeless, it can be distant future or very immediate. Tomorrow. Next month. Next year. I present it as here and now.

As I am descending into the underworld, I see the forbidden urban structures that support what was once a great metropolis. I remark the infrastructure that linked it to other great cities. Massive supports to hold up tons of concrete and rail. The sound of an occasional locomotive breaks the silence rumbling as it passes overhead and then disappears. Swallowed by the huge mouth of a sleeping city. The stillness once again reigns over these mammoth walls and columns.

Structures urbaines interdites

Les expériences et les images de mon passé influencent ma façon de voir comme un futur possible, mon propre avenir aussi bien que l'avenir collectif de toute l’humanité. L'éternel, est-ce un futur lointain ou très immédiat? Demain. Le mois suivant. L'année suivante. Je le présente comme l’ici et maintenant.

Tout en descendant dans les souterrains du monde, j’observe les structures urbaines interdites qui soutiennent ce qui fut jadis une grande métropole. Je remarque l'infrastructure qui reliait cette métropole à d'autres grandes villes. Des appuis massifs supportent des tonnes de béton et de rails. Le sifflement occasionnel d'une locomotive, grondant en passant au-dessus de nos têtes, perçe le silence puis disparaît. Avalé par l’énorme bouche d'une ville endormie. Le calme règne à nouveau au-dessus de ces murs et piliers géants.
