Reimagining the classic HG Wells into a captivating puppet theatre piece.

As part of my final year in my studies in Design for Stage and Screen - Character Makeup Design, I was prompted with redesigning The Time Machine. The classic science fiction novel explores the possibilities of the future and its inhabitants. My approach to this text is an engaging theatre show which implements puppetry to portray the evolutionary result of mankind- The Morlocks and The Eloi. This text allowed me to explore historical research as well as anticipating technologies growing involvement in the arts. These advancements allowed me to explore my concepts and ideas through the implementation of digital sculpting and drawing programs.
