These artifacts are based on a scenario in which the world has been destroyed by nuclear war.

Thesis Example:

Pre-Modernism focuses on nature, as nature itself has been lost. With this loss, we have also lost the available time in which to lose ourselves in our art, so Pre-Modernism focuses instead on short bursts of emotional release. Following the devastation, people have a strong need to release the emotions they have bottled up for so long.
