The Danakil Depression Is The Closest Thing To Hell On Earth

For those who think hell is “real,” congratulations: Beelzebub’s lair does exist and can be found in Ethiopia — at least according to National Geographic.

Dubbed the “cruelest place on Earth” by the publication, the Danakil Depression sits deep below sea level (more than 100 meters below at some of its lowest points) in northern Ethiopia’s Afar region. Not only is the depression one of the hottest places on the planet, it’s also one of the most geologically active: the depression is essentially a molten, acidic, and bubbling expanse of land unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.

For artist Phil Robson, aka FILFURY, obsession shapes life–and art.

In Robson’s case, those creativity-informing obsessions include the 90s, basketball and fashion. Such obsessions translate quite well into reality, as Robson has collaborated with Nike, Adidas and Reebok–among a host of other big names.

Also inspired by the likes of Stan Lee, Ron English, Neville Brody and Ewen Spencer, Robson describes his work as “a battle of pop culture vs nature,” and enjoys utilizing contemporary textures to repurpose form and painting. One such texture is–you guessed it–the shoe. Robson makes himself at home cutting and arranging soles, laces, tongues until they no longer resemble shoes but insects, guns, and even skulls.
