Imagine Planes and Ships As Giant Planters!


With road traffic, global trade and demand for flights all drastically reduced during the Covid-19 pandemic, French designer Nicolas Abdelkader has proposed a bold new use for the world's fuel-burning vehicles: turning them into giant planters.

In his new photo project "The Urgency to Slow Down," the designer imagines a post-pandemic world where planes, ships and cars have been converted to hold plants and trees.

Creating the digitally manipulated images while confined to his home in Paris during lockdown, Abdelkader said they are a plea to slow down energy consumption. He hopes that the pictures, which he describes as a "chimerical vision of a post-productivist society," will help viewers reflect on the what sort of world we return to after the pandemic.
