Coming Soon: Nature As Amusement Park

Finnish artist Ilkka Halso believes that, once we're done depleting the ozone, destroying the rainforests, and using up all arable land, nature will be on view in amusement parks, kinda like zoo animals—glorified yet completely devoid of purpose. Below are more images of nature amusement parks from the future.

@Annalee: and we but poor players, strutting and fretting our hours upon the stage?

As for the images, I love them, and hate them all at the same time. They do show our natural world as beauty, and for that I love them. The fact that every day the images become more true makes me hate them.

There will likely be a day where the national parks are just giant enclosed bubbles, with viewing windows and plackards that say "The Way it Was."
