A Sign For Eternity

Nuclear waste stays radioactive and toxic over thousands of years. Some weeks before the Fukushima Catastrophe the TAZ asked me to design a warning sign that should be recognized and readable also in 50 000 years (now published at the past weekend issue).

I decided to work in a primitive, aboriginallike style. In my opinion human civilization and technique will ultimately come to an end in one of the next centuries. The survival in small isolated groups, on a primitve cultural level, is a rather optimistic view. Indeed much more realistic is a scenario exactly described in Cormac McCarthys highly recommended novel „The Road“. Read this!
