Decaying Cityscapes Made Entirely Out of Bread

What would happen to our cities if humans suddenly disappeared? Stockholm-based artist and set designer Johanna Mårtensson set out to recreate that scenario by erecting a model cityscape made out of bread, and  documenting the naturally slow process of decay every day for six months. Speaking about the project Johanna says, "I was inspired by an article about how well the earth would do without us. Within 500 years all buildings would be half fallen or fallen, perfect homes for animals and plants. The forrest would soon grow in cities. After hand buildings aswell as pollutions would be taken care of by bacterias and micro-organisms."
