100 Years Later by Maico Akiba

While we’re on the topic of corrosion, I want to showcase the work of Maico Akiba: illustrator, sculptor and frequent collaborator with Yusuke Kagari. When she’s not illustrating children’s books she spends her time on an ongoing project called 100 Years Later, in which she uses her painting skills to apply what she refers to as a coat of “aging paint.”

The concept is pretty straightforward – imagining what everyday items might look like in 100 years. In an apocalyptic kind of way. The realness of her paints are mind-boggling.
