Nimmerwo: Escapism and World Building
In times like these, many of us learn to find a means of escape from the troubling reality and as Tolkien once said, “If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we are partisans of liberty, then it is our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”. It is the duty of an artist to create a new reality to which others may want to escape. With that in mind, for the last few months I have been working to create such a world. I took elements from a few of my past projects, as well as work from outside of my studies, combined elements of different mythologies and folklore, and came up with a bubble of fantasy. I can only hope that the audience will find it appealing as I take them on a journey through my ever-expanding dream.
