Invisible City Tamara

This Project is inspired by the book written by Italo Calvino "Invisible cities", the city of sign Tamara. At the beginning of the book, it says, "This is the last love poem dedicated to the city". For me, this sentence already sets the keystone for this book. All the cities, they are poetic, fantastic, and surrealistic. It is much more about perception, memory, and feeling. Thus the cities become more vivid and lively with all the tiny details.

As for me, memories are either like floating pieces in the galaxy or like old faded paper locked in a wood box. Tamara is floating in the air with waterfalls falling down at the bottom. I wanted to show my admiration to M.C. Escher and made the city with complex and illusional space. I don't want the memory is dreary, so the whole color palette is colorful like candy.
