Time Machine : Initial Concepts

Posted by Sam Hayes On Wednesday, February 15, 2012
This is the first attempt at visualizing the shape of a time machine. These are all constructed and based on machines from the Industrial era, with a bit of a fantasy feel. As I'm trying to move away from Steam-punk I envision them all running off Diesel fuel and electricity. Some of the silhouettes suggest there being a capsule where the time traveller would climb into, whilst a couple would have a seat on them. I expect I'll be looking at other themes as well as improving these.

    Consider how the machine meets the floor, Sam - these silhouettes are exciting - but there's something a bit lumpen about their bottomhalves - maybe think a bit more 'boaty' somehow - and also maybe palanquins:


    I'm sure you've seen this already - but this might help too:

    I agree with Phil Sam. I would also suggest a trip to the Science Museum in London. First hand research would really help in this case.

    One other avenue would be to look more at the history of clocks / time - taking the work TIME in to consideration alongside Machine (you have machine above). There are some very bizarre early clock designs out there. One of them may inspire a different rationale for understanding the concept of time. May be a trip to the Greenwich too?

    Think of the 'representation of time' as a possible way in.
