Break Time

So much work to do still, it just seems to build and build, despite when we complete projects and release them.

I am still worn out from working on Fahets, upon completion we threw ourselves straight into the pub.

I was planning on heading up to the surface for a few days later anyway given that it is my wifes birthday tomorrow, so now would be as good a time as any to take a few days out.

Some Surface Time

Returned to the surface earlier this week, we’ve been working on moving house and after things being dragged out we finally got the house and have been working at moving in whilst the kids are away.

Will be taking a quick trip back down to the Cavern tomorrow to just check over some of the projects that are in the works.

Hopefully by the weekend most of the moving will be done and I can return to the cavern for an extended time period.

Work & Imager Concept

It has been a long day today, spent most of it in Tehren with Steve, Keira, Rob and Sophie discussing the current projects we have going and whether to prioritize some over the others.

It’s been a slowish week since I returned, spent a few days watching the wildlife in Negilahn and Payiferen, venturing out of the pods for a closer look, I need to spend more time studying them at some point.

I spent the rest of the week going over documents in the archive to see which ones can be published publicly, and drawing up some imager plans after talking to a few people about getting information in the Cavern.

The imager is designed as a “booth” of sorts, a five sided group of imager screens that would display recent information from the Guilds or other sources of information, they could be planted in the city for people to walk by and catch the latest news. Tomorrow I’m going to stop by Sophie’s to finalize the designs with her and see if she can start working on a prototype.

To The Surface

Heading up to the surface in about an hour, going to be gone for a week or so whilst I deal with moving house and some wedding items.

Winterbloom isn’t going to be ready in time for the wedding, which is greatly disappointing, I’ve never known and Age have some many set backs it is infuriating.

Art Movements in Ages

Work has been continuing in my absence.

Today I was thinking about Age styles, and art movements on the surface. A lot of the Ages we have seen thus far have been of a certain style, even though they are different there is a core values that is shared which is born from the D’ni style, both in art, architecture and design. Even some of the newer Ages my fellow explorers have been writing share these traits, not surprisingly. We have ventured down to discover D’ni, it is only natural that their culture is going to have a strong influence on us and we are going to mimic it in our development.

But what of our culture, what of our design aesthetics, what would an Age be like with a design based on periods of our societies growth, minimalism, modernism neo-classicalism. Would Age building have movements like art does so you see a wide array of age styles and aesthetics.

I also wonder if the D’ni had something like this, Kemo, Tsogahl and Delin all share similar elements, was this down to them all being Written by the same person? Stock elements that were used in many garden Ages? Or were they inspired by each other in some sort of Age movement? Was the Garden Age binge just a period in time where Garden Ages were plentiful, or was it a movement in Age writing where Gardens were the fashion?

What caused this train of thought was the trip I made to Tre’bivdil earlier in the day, it was such a fresh style to an Age it amazed me, I am hip deep in modern and minimal design all day every day, why did I not think about applying it to an Age instead of mimicking that of the D’ni design. Tre’bivdil inspired me to try applying a modernist aesthetic to an Age.
