I wish I could see Yang Yongliang’s work in person, because it’s otherworldly and stunning. A vision of a future that is calming yet exhilarating. Click on this top image for a more detailed look.

Via Colossal:

Yongliang is known for his sprawling photographic collages that depict the devastating effects of uncontrolled urbanisation and industrialisation. At a distance the works look like traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy but when viewed up close, the peaceful mountains and seascapes are found to be choked with buildings, factories, and machinery.
