New York magazine starts an article on the epic movie I Am Legend, this way.
“A virus hits in 2009, infecting everyone but Will Smith. By 2012, New York is rife with monsters at night yet empty during the day: a spookily beautiful dystopia.”
Although it’s a great film we all know that the best thing about it was the abandoned cityscape that time had created.
So imagine my jaw dropping when I saw Emilie Lumineau’s virus-inspired vision of Edinburgh, should the lockdown continue in the same way.
Emilie is a graduate of Napier Uni and is working in the hospitality marketing sector but it is her private work that has caught me eye and you can see more of it here.
I have to say, it is truly outstanding work. Simply the most interesting and exciting (and frankly beautiful creative idea I have seen about the lockdown since it started.
Thank you Emilie.
