Above the Lights by yuumei Above the Lights by yuumei


The urban jungle that never sleeps. Bright city lights masquerade as the stars above. A reflection of humanity. A testament to our hubris.

There's a comforting warmth to know that in the ruthless growth of society, you are nothing and yet the sky is within your reach.

Inspired by this photo series iaredesu.tumblr.com/post/54906…

Sometimes I wonder how much i'd be willing to give just to have the ability to see a sky full of stars in the middle of a city.

An app called "Virtual Space Amino" is using your artwork in its UI. I don't know if you gave them permission to do so, but I figured it's best to let you know.
