Parisian artist Ludo has finished another installation in Paris, France. Entitled “Space Tourism” the mural shows different brands, Amazon / Space X / Virgin, evading the moon. The mural also features a scene from Georges Méliès‘s 1902 film A Trip to the Moon, which is a very fitting imagery to people’s obsession with scientific discovery, explorations, and expeditions to the furthest reaches of the planet.
The work of Ludo, often called ‘Nature’s Revenge’, connects the world of plants and animals with our technological universe and a quest for modernism. It speaks about what surrounds us, what affects us and tries to highlight some kind of humility.
Ludo’s work aspires to jolt us out of a longstanding collective denial: despite repeated natural disasters, we refuse to acknowledge our own fragile state. Humanity’s reign on this planet is a dangerous and fleeting illusion.
