Could our society be living in a dystopia?
If we reverse the Darwinian approach, it could be that what seems to be the pinnacle of civilization is not designed for man, but for animals capable of developing behaviors more effective than those of human beings.
In Dystopian Landscape, Cesc Abad allows us to enter a kind of Garden of Eden where each element lives in communion with its environment, and at the same time, makes us reflect on the dangers of technological advances, which can mutate parts of an animal body into a traffic light or a gun.
Perhaps we are facing an involution of the species, where the true pariahs of the planet will be the men and women who observe the desires of the animal species, perhaps we are facing a new dystopia that allows us to reflect on our role in the world, as a satire of human behavior.
Perhaps Cesc Abad is inventing a world to talk about our own.
