WORLDS is and experimental publication focused on the idea of alternate realities. Within the working group, we each focused on a different facet of how alternate realities affected our lives.

Through countless inserts, objects, and foldout pages, we allowed the viewers to create their own path through the book and ephemera. To form their own conclusions on the concepts we raised and discussed through the book.

One of the members of the group, in her focus on the worlds created by traditional Chinese myth, decided that the way to keep most true to the topic material was to keep it in its original language. As such, large portions of this multi-lingual publication are in Chinese.
