Midterm Project

A Divider between Parallel Worlds

Construct 2 worlds that are similar or different from each other.  The world can have a contrasting ideology or a slightly different culture.  Be clear about the theme of the worlds by constructing the worlds using drawing, renderings, artifacts, models, photos, and etc.  With the skills you have acquired from this class, construct a divider between the two worlds.  Consider how the divider will look from both sides.  Is it something to protect you from getting into the world or is it easy to go through between them.
