    This image shows that the government tried to create the perfect utopian society although nothing can always be perfect. Man will always “screw everything up.” The image displays a city burnt to the ground, without a sight of anyone. In a nutshell, creating the perfect utopia will only result in, unintentionally, creating a dystopia.

    The ideas seen in this image have been enacted to form a dystopian society by displaying faceless manikins, this comments on the lack of personality in a dystopian society however, one of the manikins have normal facial features on it (eyes, nose, mouth) displaying that there is always an odd one out.

    Faizal-Image 2
    This image comments on the dystopian ideology by showing two very different images. The image on the left represents a ‘utopian’ society, hence everything being colourful and bright. A utopian society being where everyone has a freedom of speech, is entitled to his or her own decisions and so on.
    The second Image basically is the total opposite of the image on the left. It displays a dystopian society where everyone is like headless chickens. The hierarchy is corrupt and life is hard, as displayed in second half of the image.

    This image conveys the idea of dystopia by showing a man turning his back on the government. He stands alone although represents most of the society. Perhaps it happened to be a utopian society before however, in the photo, it clearly displays a dystopian society. The man is expressing his freedom of speech by giving the finger to the authorities.

    Youii G image 4
    This image is the composer's idea of dystopia. This image shows a society that is completely destroyed, where everything is destroyed as well as the sky being filled with dark Grey and black clouds, The composer shows us that No matter if humanity can create a great utopia it will eventually end in chaos, demolition and then complete destruction.
