World Building & Visual Concept
For this project, I got inspired by the documentary Our Planet (2019). If we don't start fishing sustainably, the oceans might contain not much more than jellyfish. There are already more jellyfish in the ocean, which is a sign of unbalance in the sea. I thought it could be interesting to explore the idea of jellyfish, not only being the only life in the ocean, but having grown and mutated into Water Giants of the sea. I asked myself: what would happen if jellyfish were the only life in the ocean?
In a near future, the oceans have elevated and changed the shores. Main Land is inhabited by the rich and important, the rest must live in ’Floating Cities’. The animal life in the ocean is extinct, except for one species: the Jellyfish. Jellyfish are thriving and they have evolved into ginats of the ocean. Most jellyfish are harmless, but when they reach a certain size, even humans can become food and it’s always a risk for the people living on open water.
