Fantasy World Design
This project consists of concept designs for various aspects of a fantasy world inspired by classic science fiction journey literature such as Jules Vernes' "Voyages Extraordinaires."
This world is based on the idea that in the past, the earth broke apart into various different tectonic plates, still held within the atmosphere due to gravity, essentially becoming separate floating islands. With the restriction in transportation to different parts of the world, the societies on each island developed in a vastly different way than recorded history. This project sets off with a voyager creating a flying machine and traveling to these various islands to explore how the world has changed.
Floating Island Design
Below are concept designs for one hypothesized island originating as the minor Somali plate off the eastern coast of the African continent.
