Contemporary Cities – Robot Heaven/Human Hell

There are so many hidden constraints which set upon a person in an urban area which deny one the freedom that we both deserve and require. Which is why nature should be allowed to co-exist in city areas, like the artist Hundertwasser would say..the straight line is alien to people. The straight line ‘is’ a symbol of restraint itself. Trees should line our streets, grass should grow on roofs, maybe even trees on roughs (if it could work). The sculpture park where i work as a building with a grass roof, its only 5 miles from my town, i would like to see this used in many more buildings. Think of the amount of pollution that would be soaked up. Like I say I’m an artist, and i know nothing about architecture, but i believe the morals for these ideas should be taken seriously.

(paintings a photo edits for my local towns, that i made earlier (as in 1 year earlier), to roughly describe what i mean.

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
