Secularness is an unprecedented, notable part of post-industrial societies. However, the first decades of the twenty-first century have shown international reaction against it, to the point of violence. The coming decades are likely filled with hardship. An often overlooked consequence of global climate change are the depleting worlds water, already being felt throughout the African continent. And of course, hardship begets religious fervour. The Axial Age or "pivotal age" is proposed period between, 8th - 3rd century, a tumultuous time, where the roots of globes dominant religions, have their roots. This short animation is a summation of these thoughts. Satellite imaging of the Royal College of Art, was used to create the landscape, albeit in distorted fashion. And what of the central figure, a would-be godling, another idol, or is something familiar to you, as if from a distant past.

Bradley Davies (b.1994) is a multidisciplinary artist, currently operating at Merthyr Tydfil, UK.His practice is concerned with the nature of the arts as a transparent approach to possible worlds (D. Lewis, S. Kripke) and the implications thereof. That is to say, artists in their work convey modal-semantic propositions in a way that is receptive and purposeful, whether communicative, expressive or heutagogical; self-teaching.He endeavours to demonstrate this in his own practice, and to achieve that effect in any medium. Though he used to doing so by drawing, painting and sculpture, he has recently begun to transition into working in silico; through the use of digital modelling software, ideally in a syncretistic fashion.
