This is a reworking of one of my Shillington class briefs that never made its way into my portfolio. The aim was to develop somehting that included visual elements that were made by hand. The Revelation Space series is a story of humanity in the far future and tells of devastating interstellar wars, strange alien civilizations and the destructive nature of technology we wield heedless of its consequences. Alastair Reynolds has been a big inspiration of mine both creatively and scientifically and it was awesome to see these tributes take shape.
The handmade pieces were made by applying destructive processes to coloured paper like sanding, wire-brushing and tearing. This reflected the themes of destruction and decay in Reynolds' works.
