The world continues to change day by day as industrialization takes place. The massively transforming landscape of past soil, wood and water are turning into urban scenery in the form of sky rise buildings and mega factories. Sculptor and artist Alexander Becherer explores this idea with his surrealistic sculptures depicting an ever changing modern world.

Using his different understanding of the urban transformation, Becherer transforms wood, cement, spray paint among others into statements and images that help describe this seemingly growing and living transformation of the world. His works are reminiscent of the iconic scene in the movie “Inception” wherein the world folds upon itself in an intricate puzzle of visual elements with an urban context. Becherer used symbols and words to address the prediction of a global population that would soon be living mostly in cities by the time the year 2030 comes.
