Here is the explanation that I included in the entry:
I'm concerned that due to global warming the sea levels will rise flooding the land where we live and thrive. Will the solution be to have floating cities? This "Noah's Ark" of an idea would house many people and at the same time have the features that would make citizens feel at home like a movie theatre, a grocery store, a post office, restaurants and housing. The general store sells items like fishing pools, grills and brooms while the cinema plays movies about the desires of the people: "Now Playing: Land!". Even the church windows feature water and a lighthouse - two things that people respect and search for. The flags are white, which is a symbol of surrender - surrender to the ocean and also to other city ships in order to have peace during this difficult time. The whale represents hope. He is friendly and shows that the oceans are still full of life. Although this city is filled with buildings the people are absent. Where are they? Have they survived or are they just out of view?
