Atlantis

A corner of a house surfaces from the water. In the parts that are visible, life seems to continue. Warm house lights shine forth from the dark waves. From the watery depths, we hear the quiet sound of singing and arguing. 

Atlantis is a dream-like vision, a reminder of the vulnerability of our modern lifestyle. This accident could have multiple causes. Some of these are a product of the human settlement itself. Some individual inhabitants of Atlantis have refused to leave their homes and are continuing their daily life, ignoring the surrounding water.
