Bleak World is a collection of work informed by ...kruse's relationship to landscape and hir concerns regarding the impacts of the current climate and ecological emergencies. 

Bleak World is both informed by and informs ...kruse's work with AuTCRONE. In making these works, ...kruse visualises the future dystopia AuTCRONE indicates we are heading toward. 

The project includes photographs of landscapes ...kruse has personally encountered, altered and manipulated digitally. Fractured 'suns,' actually drawings made with hir walking devices, hang in the sky.

 

These landscapes are without people or animals. Silent, abandoned vistas inhabited, ...kruse imagines, by grieving cyborgs and mutant insects.
