German artist Max Guther has released another collection of hyper-real Sims-like illustrations that analyze modern society.

The series, entitled “Now and Soon,” takes a look at modern “megatrends” — in the images we see Birkenstocks, gym-goers and of course, lots of bikes.

However, it’s through these trends that we get a birds-eye view of the mundanity and uniformity of modern life. Identical looking buildings are filled with people all going about their daily business in a remarkably similar fashion (we’d be lying if we said it didn’t look a little like our day-to-day life).

Browse through the images above, then head to Guther’s site below for more of his work.
