Product Description

Scientists wandering throughout Markul’s video, trapped inside heavy protective gear, appear more like travelers to an alien planet – or a hidden dimension, growing within the earth. Making Worlds introduces the reader to “the imaginary capacity to build new worlds” through art. A selection of artists, curators, historians, and authors explore alternate art histories and the influence of science fiction, technology, and speculation on creative thought. A treacherous world of crystals is even described in the science-fiction work The Crystal World: introducing alien, crystal structures and the threatening concept of “anti-time” that exists in direct opposition to human influence.
