It’s all fantasy, but how it feels is what makes it real.


With shared anxiety about social and ecological collapse, we see a rise in dystopian arts. It was only a matter of time before these shared tensions would result in a shared expression. This is that shared expression, this is “Wasteland Weekend.”


The Wastes is a pop-up alternate reality set in the post-apocalyptic future. The aesthetic and attitude is largely based on the post-apocalyptic world of the Mad Max franchise. The environment is hostile, no food, no natural shade, and absolutely no water.


I think people find comfort in the idea that if the worst came and happened, that everything would be ok. That we would continue, and that this all makes for good practice.
