This series explores apocalyptic video games, where, due to a lack of human intervention, nature has been able to reclaim urban space within the digital world. A number of the works depict car graveyards, where abandoned, long forgotten cars have become monuments to the virtual users who would have previously inhabited them within the digital space. The works begin with Bicknell-Knight wandering through these virtual worlds, using in game photography techniques to document the degradation of technology and modern life in a number of different in game environments. The cars, buildings and roads depicted in the paintings are relics from a future world, not dissimilar to our own, with these elements frozen in time and space due to unknown interventions.
