Summer Project - Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey is a 3D platform video game developed and published by Nintendo.

This game features a photo-mode that allows players to use a free-moving camera to take and save screenshots, with additional options such as filters.

All of these images have been used in the 'Odyssey' zine. Taken from various worlds, being unified in existing in the same game. With modern technology constantly evolving taking photos is much easier due to 'cameras in pockets'. This uses that concept to a new level. Virtual image has inspired a personal aesthetic.

I previously concentrated on the metro kingdom as the other kingdoms in the game are based more on fantasy.

For this project I am looking at all the kingdoms. It is interesting to look at how this game's virtual world still relates us back to the real world in a strange juxtaposition.

Some of the photos from this project are in Issue Four of Zanna Magazine as the dreamlike worlds, that you could all too easily lose yourself in, bring a sense of peace and harmony which fits perfectly with the theme of balance.
