Class of: 2023

Major: Design and Technology BFA

Medium: Combination of 3D, sketching and digital work

Faculty: Christian Nguyen

Prompt: Reconstruction of a culture of our choice. We had to create a daily life sketch, 2 point perspective of a building, an important object and a diorama

I chose to represent the land of Alifbay as mentioned in the book “Haroun and the Sea of Stories” by Salman Rushdie. The story follows twelve-year-old Haroun who sets out on an adventure to restore his father’s gift of storytelling by reviving the poisoned Sea of Stories. I focused on the map of Alifbay and the magical creatures of the land in particular.
