Post-Apocalyptic Ecotopias
This Nick Pedersen Series is Fiercely Enviromental

By: Josh Triantafilou (Star) Jun 19, 12

In this series titled ‘Ultima,’ Philadelphia-based illustrator Nick Pedersen seeks to convey the often-contentious relationship between contemporary humanity and nature. In particular, he explores how technology and infrastructure contrast and conflict with the natural world. He also aims to reveal the differences between contemporary, technological cultures and more pastoral ones. Much of the series seeks to convey the inevitable power of nature in contrast with the fragility of humanity.

Pedersen portrays scenes from a post-apocalyptic world, in which human-made structures crumble back into nature. Suburban neighborhoods are enveloped by plants and weeds as cities are flooded. The world depicted in this series is what Nick Pedersen calls an “ecological utopia.” An implication of this label, is that the natural world cannot exist in a perfect state without the absence of technological humanity.
