WORLD OF ZEANIA
Zeania is a virtual world created using Voxelshop, Unity and Blender tools to bring design ideas to life on the screen. Within this virtual world a user can explore the structures with a 360 degree view of their surroundings and interact with other beings and objects there.
After I designed the elements of this virtual reality and it’s inhabitants, I then used 3D printing technology to physically print and build the world from colored filaments.
The architectural influences for my building designs are varied: from colonial cottages to ancient castles to western saloons. I created each building from scratch and included elements that make each structure unique. All of the structures were built with a specific world in mind.
Space World: a space colony residing on an asteroid
Normal World: a reflection of our own world
Western World: set in the American Old West
Holiday World: a quaint village in the North Pole
Medieval World: a realm of knights and castles
Halloween World: where your nightmares wander free
Creating the inhabitants of these worlds was an exercise in creativity, as a majority of these beings are robots with quirky characteristics. For example, Bob the robot is a giant friendly fellow with a propensity for clumsily crashing through buildings.
Hundreds of hours were spent operating the 3D printer as it formed the parts of these worlds and its characters. I then carefully set up the displays and installed LED lighting to make the scenes complete.
