Octavia Project participants completed a month-long workshop series where they brought their imaginary worlds to life in writings, drawings, maps, prints, sculptures, 3D models, online games, and wearable electronics.

Block Printing
Alien Plants

My alien plant can detect the truth. I was inspired by the movie Avatar. The plant will shrivel up if you’re a liar, and it will extend outward if you’re truthful.

Clay Modeling
Alien Cities

This project design came from my alien plant world. I drew the plant of truth and the culture that might go with it.

This is another view of my clay model.

Photographing NYC
Alien Imagery

My alien plant inspired my photography. I found a tree in real life that reminded me of the Tree of Hope, to symbolize hope and strength to the people of my alien culture.
