…McDonald’s was flooded?

Flooded McDonald's

Superflex created an interesting art project called Flooded McDonald’s where a life-size replica of a McDonald’s interior was built, and then flooded with water.

Furniture is lifted up by the water, trays of food and drinks start to float around, electrics short circuit and eventually the space becomes completely submerged.

The work doesn’t contain any further explanation, so it’s up to you to provide your own narrative, but with imagery like this, it shouldn’t be too hard.
