New Makoko Village [Lagos 2081 A.D.]

These pieces tell a story of an imagining of Lagos in the year 2081 A.D.  The Great Crude Explosion has just occurred; leaving oil  flowing freely through the streets of the slums.  Politicians have been exiled at the heels of bomb blasts and the populace’s uprising.  The building of a new Centre of the World has begun, much to the bewilderment of Western nations.  This is the birth of New Lagos…and men of taste are wearing Ikiré Jones.
