This is a beautiful implied transition from a societal to a natural organic culture. It suggests a metaphor of the passing of the present, into an evolutionary past. Darwinian overtones represent a clawback from modern technology based communities into a primordial base, an evolutionary regression. But I wont say it again ;) While it is a dramatic visual transition, it feels as though there is inevitability to the process, and quite advanced. The unsuspecting crowd is complicit in its’ demise to a more paradoxical but simplistic ascendance – or dependence?
