The Time Machine
This particular piece was based on a story I had read in one of my old childhood books.
I had just moved back to Dubai from the United States and I could help but be mesmerized by my hometown.
I did have a big culture shock when I returned (it had been about ten years since I left)
and the city had changed a lot. Thereís of course thereís the incredible metropolitan jungle that
had sprung up, but I found myself being pulled back to the more older, ethnic and Arabic elements of the city.
I canít remember the name of the story but it was about a young boy who comes across
his grandfatherís old inventions, one them being this crazy balloon slash time machine
slash aircraft. And so he takes a ride on it with his little companion fox and travels
to all these cool places. I was so inspired by the story and my current environment
I just had to concept it out. I wanted to make the sky grey from all the dust and
sandstorms, while keeping the balloon bright and vivid.
I had a lot of fun making this prop and I really like the way it turned out!
