The Global Flooding of 2010 by fstarno The Global Flooding of 2010 by fstarno
"The Global Flooding of 2010" is an Artwork inspired by the true scientific theory (see the movie "An inconvenient Truth") of a really quick flooding that would touch huge areas of the Earths most densely populated regions.

You can see in this image, the city of Shanghai, China completely flooded.
This scenario involves the melt of glaciers by creating a liquid water (melt zone) layer below the ice that lubricates and moves the ice a very high rate -extremely rapid as glaciers go, flowing the glacier into the ocean. The quantity of water in that sheet would raise sea levels about 15 meters.

This is my first personal matte-painting project that I did concerning the global warming issue. An other one is coming soon. People mostly agrees that something needs to be done about global warming and climate change. However, most people does'nt seems to do something really significant in their live even if the situation is urgent.

I would like to do a contribution to any serious group, organism, company related to environment who want to use this image. I can send this image (a high-resolution for any sort of prints or web) for free, as long as it is use for environment purposes.

I worked around 10 hours to achieve this image, using only Photoshop and a "degrainer" software. I chose only 2 to 4 photos to do this. The first one comes from my trip in China in November 2007 in the other one comes from the shooting I did last summer involving a women character and a "home-made" boat.

The question is for how long it stays an alternative reality. You see something similar already happening in Australia (although that's only a flood).

That looks great, a nice concept and it really captures the essence. Admittedly, I don't do enough for the environment, but that was inspiring.

Wow, such an interesting concept, really well done! You should consider submitting this to the #CoolClimate Art Contest, since this work so aptly describes what their cause is! :D
