Postcard From Oputia: Bubble City
Oil On Board
30 X 40 cm
I think I have mentioned before that the people of Oputia are not good in a crisis. They do tend to panic a bit if their ordered existence is threatened by some random event - such as the great pollution scare. There was a strange smell - it was mildly unpleasant - but it soon dissipated in the clear mountain air. Nevertheless steps were taken and Bubble City was built; in any future crisis residents could take refuge and breathe clear, unpolluted air.
One useful incidental consequence is that it is now possible to grow salad crops all year round and there is no need to eat brussels sprouts at Christmas.
