Planetary Cult Concepts

University Project for 2nd year, exploring the topic of "New Normals" brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Inspired by current events, along with Michio Kaku's book "The Future of Humanity", I explored the circumstances in which humanity might have to flee Earth, and how a new world-leader/cult may formulate to guide humanity into it's next steps.

The Storyteller has mastered the art of storytelling and is is able to weave narratives that automatically become truth through the devoted belief of his followers. The faction places value on knowledge and seeks out information in any form, which is then treated as currency. Cult priests enforce the narrative of the storyteller, whilst Cult hunters seek out any heretics that may tarnish their story.

I was able to learn a lot of digital techniques throughout this project whilst practicing digital painting, and had a great time exploring the narrative through research and ideation!
