Under Future Skies. New York City

Old metropolises stood partially intact - lit with a colorful glow that emanated from crowded skies: remains from a future that soared past the earth.

The skies were dark with the exhaust of sky-borne vehicles and burned out stars: remains from a present littered behind the future.

And under the left-over sky-rubble, old architecture rose from the ground stubbornly: remains from a past left behind long ago.

This is an ongoing side project: surreal future-dystopian (and utopian) cityscapes incorporating recognizable architecture and landscapes: part of a larger series that I am imagining that takes place in the future.

Another Dawn. The Manhattan Bridge. New York City.

You gripped my hands when you told me about this time: a time when cities were rooted to the earth. 

Under another dawn’s sky, New York City’s structures reached up like hands grasping at too-far-away stars. 

Bridges stretched out like rapidly deteriorating veins in an urban body destined for decay: remnants from a time when it was a feat just to cross over water with nothing but clumsy fossil-fueled vehicles, when our imaginations were limited by a devotion to the ground below.

And I squinted, trying to imagine life bound to the ground with only passing curiosity to lead the eyes to the skies.

In another dawn, would I have looked up at these same structures with some sort of wonder?

Painted Memories. Future New York City. Chrysler Building. Midtown.

We looked at old photos of the metropolises we once called home with their towers reaching up to an unexplored sky. These structures stood tall in a universe full of wonder and dust from an infinite number of stars.

Our breath stopped, caught in our throats as our tears diluted the remnants of paint that had found their way onto these crumbling archaic testaments revealing entire cities beneath the caked, colored surface.

For a brief moment, it was as if our tears had the power to unearth memories from the recesses of time.

Monolith of a distant past. Chrysler Building. Midtown.

We kept pieces of the old cities in place to remind us of a time when we were bound to the earth. 

Their buildings stood empty yet proud: monoliths constructed in a time when wonder could be extracted from the tiniest of glimpses into an unexplored sky.

They stood there: remnants of times when white clouds were all that was plentiful and when our faces replicated themselves temporarily onto their gleaming facades.

While the rest of the world pushed forward under red skies dotted with emulsified exhaust, we stopped to take in a view of a distant past.

And I scratched our memories into the sky with an old key.
