Tumblr artist Trash Riot creates intense, surreal collages that look like science fiction art. In the pasted-together scenes, astronauts gaze down on swimming pools filled with tiny people and sculpted angels dive down towards the surface of Earth.

Using themes like exploration of outer space, popular culture and ancient mythology, Trash Riot creates complex landscapes that defy understanding. Each image seems to spark a thousand possible stories. Combining the poignantly human and the wholly supernatural, the science fiction art uses a traditional medium to create its own genre.

Trash Riot's tumblr account is a treasure trove of completely unique artwork. An exploration of the science fiction art takes the viewer backward into pop culture history and outward to other planets.
