“Architectural Apocalypse” is a silkscreen print in an edition of twenty. It was produced during my studies at Emily Carr. It is inspired by my building and design experience. Making this print has fulfilled part of my interest into the structures that make up civilization.

Dylan Moffat is in his fourth year at Emily Carr University, where his concentration is in the field of Industrial Design. He earned an Associates Degree from White Mountain Academy of the Arts in Visual Arts and spent six years living in Whistler, BC where he participated in the arts and cultural community. He has passion for both art and design and is interested in exploring the aesthetic and functional connection between the two. He is attracted to the practice of printmaking because of its ritualistic process, which is similar to the process of designing. He sees attending Emily Carr as a fantastic opportunity to explore his creative limitations and follow his mind through a conceptual and developmental labyrinth. He will be showing his new designs at the Emily Carr Graduation Show in the spring of 2016.

“Forty-thousand years ago, Palaeolithic peoples came out of the shelter of the cave to build into the vastness of the landscape. Today our environment is sprawling with the architectural development of buildings and shelters. In this time of rapid urbanization we are forced to cram into confined spaces, living on top of each other in a cosmopolis of ‘Architectural Apocalypse.’”
