Terra Cognita

Alison Carey

New Kingdoms (2007-2012)

What will the world be like when synthetic organisms, created by man, adapt to the natural environment? Alison Carey photographed dioramas with creatures made from flesh-like material, creating an image of the world after man. It is a science fiction landscape that is less unreal than it seems. The progress of tissue engineering will make it possible in the future for us to create entities that can exist outside the controlled environment of the laboratory.
