‘Diminishing Possibilities’ positions the viewer at the tipping point of the impending global catastrophes confronting the upcoming generation. We have been warned of how the critical decisions we make now will determine the quality of life for future generations. There is an ever-shrinking window in which our actions can alter or suspend the trajectory we mindlessly continue to follow.
In the panel, the window occupies the center and affords the two observers a glimpse into the murky, ominous landscape that awaits them if no action is taken. The architecture that surrounds them is an expression of an over/developed oppressive environment seems to be closing in on them. There is no call for any specific action in the panel...but there is a call for action and the urgency is reflected in the title – ‘Diminishing Possibilities’.
