People move closer together. While rural areas depopulate, the metropolises are booming.
Life condenses, people of different ethnicities and religions mix in a confined space, the cities are skyrocketing, and gaining in width. New York, Mexico City, Istanbul, Mumbai or Tokyo, megacities with more than 10 or 20 million inhabitants now exist all over the world and they become more and more alike. In the luxury centers business people rush between skyscrapers and crowded subways. The slums or ghettos often seem decades behind the centers with their dirt, poor dwellings and traditional means of transport.
In his series Dawin Meckel merges three cities into a mega-metropolis that assembles the characteristics of all global cities. Shanghai, Hydarabad, Sao Paolo und New Delhi become one "Übercity".
