Seven huge, detailed, trifold posters make up this unique depiction of a small village as it changes, over two decades, from a town to a city. Each painting is executed from the same perspective, allowing viewers to easily compare and contrast the different buildings, vehicles, and people in the pictures. The large format of each image immerses viewers in the evolving landscape, serving as a discussion starter about issues from land use to urban planning. Perfect for teachers, this wordless panorama of a vanishing village will awaken concern and inspire reflection about how people live on the land.
