Topic Description
Time Machine – … is obviously the title of a novel by H. G. Wells. But of course, many designers and artists over the years have attempted to imagine a device that would allow mankind to travel through space and time, be it the DeLorean from Back to the Future or Doctor Who’s Tardis. Now it’s your turn to come up with a unique design of a marvelous time traveling device that will bend our minds as it will bend space and time!

Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Jeffrey Hepburn

Almost everything is just beautiful in this video: Unique storytelling, great materials and very atmospheric lighting. A really enchanting scenery that would have been right away perfect with a bit more work on the camera movement.

2nd place by Arnaud Imobersteg

Stunning nature details add here to a rich and endearing environment mood. The calm composition complements this beautiful image.

3rd place by Leo Kolke

Framing and composition create a very intense feeling in this image. One can really sense the dynamic tension! Thoroughly executed effects such as the lightning bolts further add to the energetic mood.
