10,000 Years From Now

10,000 Years From Now examines the fragility of this lifetime in contrast to geological timescales. Inspired by his fascination with the Internet and other technological forms of mass communication, Francis isolates popular scenarios from the present and examines their inherent fragility against collapsing architectural backdrops as they exist within digital formats. His latest body of work highlights the perilous nature of our constructed world and brings into focus the futility of our social legacy. Francis continues to draw inspiration and raw material from cinema, pornography, street culture, and images sampled from the Internet, synthesizing these sources into a quasi-literal vision of the "mediated" landscape. Through his work he explores society’s obsession with popular culture and the detachment he personally undergoes in relation to this pervasive sense of societal collapse and impending apocalypse.
