Illustrator Vicki Ling created a new series called Hanging By a String with which she reminds us that modern life is, in fact, pretty fragile.
Ling illustrates catastrophes just waiting to happen if there weren’t for the string that holds them for the time being. Just one slip of the red string would be enough to destroy everything, and that’s the message she wants to get out to the world.
“We can observe society today has achieved a high degree of economic and technological development, yet we are contemporaneously struggling to keep up with the increasingly fast pace and materialistic nature of life,” This is Colossal quotes Ling.
