When will it all collapse?

Take a photo that manipulates distance to create an optical illusion. For example, I created an image of me holding the Washington Monument in my hand.

(Visual assignment optical illusion) The book Collapse by Jared Dimond is a story of overuse of resources and mishandling of the world leading to societal collapse. This image is to represent this as we as people are constantly overusing resources including ones for transportation. I was trying to use this image of the book collapsing over the car as an example of when it all comes crashing down if environmental and resource protections aren’t kept up.

To do this photo I tried to get an angle that made the books seem larger than they were without it being obvious I was holding them at that angle. The photo techniques were helpful in trying to come up with a solid way to angle this photo and I kept going back to the view of an ant.
