Model Making and Worldbuilding

Project Cosmic was the culmination of a model making class I participated in during Spring 2021. Our final project was to design a room in an off-planet environment.

For my project, I was very inspired by the Retrofuturism art movement and older depictions of the future, primarily the 70s, like the Jetsons and earlier versions of Tomorrowland at Disneyland. I loved the juxtaposition between the bright, happy-go-lucky, sitcom-esque way that the future was presented combined with all of the technical marvels. I was also inspired by 70s architecture and design, which is how I discovered the conversation pit. 

One of the retro future ideas that I really wanted to develop was vacationing in space. I envision my room being one of hundreds aboard a giant spaceship that can take tourists all around the galaxy, like a cruise ship in space. I took this idea and continued to build up my room model, culminating in a photo-bashing project to show what the exterior of the ship would look like.
