TIMELINE

The timeline will track the steps to pivotal insights and moments that helped shape this project and universe. In retrospect the course of this project very much resembles that of an candidate and master degree study so I’ve come to view it as an autodidact (self-taught) one in supplement or substitution of the formal degree that I have taken in Illustration and Graphic Design.

There were additional steps preluding this project that would shape my path towards creating in 3 dimensions which are documented here:
