James Graham Ballard (1930-2009), who is well-known for his post-/apocalyptic fiction, represented chaotic conditions of human beings in the face of environmental disasters and their endeavour to survive in the nonhuman environment through and after the apocalypse. In his post-apocalyptic novel The Drought (1965) Ballard depicts a world turning into a global desert due to the toxic waste release into seas and oceans all around the world.

In doing so, this article proposes that there is an intrinsic relationship between the human psyche and nonhuman agency within the temporal and spatial frame
