Artist Mieke Geenen’s Space Tourist series offers a surreal look at what the universe would look like once our planet was no longer a fertile land to live on. The series explores the imminent responsibility of transporting animals, starting from scratch by building civilizations on other planets, and the distance manifested between species who have claimed their own plot of air in space.

The Antwerp, Belgium-based digital artist and expert photo manipulator explains, “These are the quietest places in the world. It is after the fire and the dust. Our records of the past have gone missing, the stars have become our street lights. Most species have vanished. Echoes, ruins and some wandering survivors appear once in a while. I have taken a moment to consider eternity – I am a space tourist.”
