Virtual World

DRAFT a later version will be contributed to Wikipedia

Virtual World

We often think of virtual worlds as very vast spacial ranges with no bounds similar yet different to our own universe. I was challenged to create an image that grounded the “virtual world” into the “real world”, I achieved this by making the virtual world more similar to the real by grounding it in a […]

A virtual world is an online community that takes the form of a computer-based simulated environment through which users can interact with one another and use and create objects. The term has become largely synonymous with interactive 3D virtual environments, where the users take the form of avatars visible to others. These avatars usually appear as textual, two-dimensional, or three-dimensional representations, although other forms are possible (auditory and touch sensations for example). In general, virtual worlds allow for multiple users.

The elevated moods are clinically referred to as mania or, if milder, hypomania.

Forced Conversion

DRAFT a later version will be contributed to Wikipedia

I was interested in this topic and created an illustration of it and also as a class final project. I included 3 drafts and the final image. Although in Forced Conversion, religion is being forced against someone’s will to convert and through historical attempts, it is done by Christians. I wanted to imply this meaning […]

A forced conversion is the religious conversion or acceptance of a philosophy against the will of the subject, often with the threatened consequence of earthly penalties or harm. There is no support in the Bible for forced conversion[citation needed], but there have been historical attempts by Christians to force the religious conversion of individuals, groups, and entire populations.

CamWhore

DRAFT a later version will be contributed to Wikipedia

The Wikipedia illustration was for a class final project and I have chosen on the topic “camwhore”. Most of the images used here are myself except for two that were found under the flickr creative commons license. Camwhore is implied to an individual so I wanted to send that message across to the viewers. I […]

Frustration is a common emotional response to opposition. Related to anger and disappointment, it arises from the perceived resistance to the fulfillment of individual will. The greater the obstruction, and the greater the will, the more the frustration is likely to be.

Teleportation

Share:EmailTwitterRSS

Teleportation is a term that covers a number or theories and notions concerning the transfer of matter, energy or information between two places without it having to traverse the distance between the two conventionally; similar to the concept apport, an earlier word used in the context of spiritualism. Teleportation is used widely in works of science fiction and fantasy. As a means of transferring matter or live organisms over long distances quickly, teleportation is not currently considered possible.

Fear of Clowns

DRAFT a later version will be contributed to Wikipedia

Share:EmailTwitterRSS

Coulrophobia is an abnormal, irrational fear of clowns. The term is of recent origin, probably dating from the 1980s. The prefix "coulro-" may be derived from an Ancient Greek word meaning "stilt-walker", although the concept of a clown as a figure of fun was unknown in classical Greek culture.
