Hello everyone! This is another "lazy" project (it's only a façade once again but meh I don't have much time to build) that was done a while ago. I tried to develop the style of my previous project and refine it a little. Some of you might recognize a tower that was originally made a year ago for Land Of The Schnogot 4 xD Hope you enjoy this!

Explanation of title and concept: as we look higher at the building, the structure gets thicker and the colors, brighter. And this is supposed to represent the removal of human perceptions, values, blah blah....

Pictures in high quality here! Still looking for someone who could make better renders haha

ALL PICTURES WITH FEATHERSONG TEXTURE PACK

Also sorry for you German folks if you can't watch the video :/

Freedom of illusions
Innate from a veracious fiction"

No way to know what is true
You are confused and you feel
That someone is playing with you"

Anyway, great project! :D Also like the meaning of the title!

I dont think you know what nihilism is, the bright colours of this build are quite removed from the nihilistic belief that all life and objects are meaning less and that the universe is a cold and unforgiving place. Its a bloody good build tho!

Thank you. I certainly know what nihilism is, don't worry. The actual explanation of the build is that at the bottom is a complex structure with multiple colors but it soon simplifies and you are left with a small transparent roof on top. This roof is exactly the "meaningless" contrasting to the mass of human values, perceptions, etc. that are expressed below it. But anyways I'm not that much into perfect visual representation of abstract things with abstract things because it already sounds quite hipster which isn't really great imo haha. That being said, nihilism can take different interpretations and definitions. Nonetheless I'm glad someone actually talked about this, cheers!

Okay NOW you are a hipster! xD
Anyway I personally find it too hard to build straight after a specific concept (= arts/architectural style) cause the limitations can be just too tight. It's also quite cool to mix different styles from different time periods to create another layer of contrast (you get the contrast in each of the styles and the one between both).

I'm the most anti-hipster person and paradoxically the more hipster-ish hipster person too :O Also this concept came to me while I was building it and thought it could represent it, so this is not a build really planned/made after a concept ;P

It's almost always like that!
And if you don't know what to interpret anything meaningful just say "It's a metaphor of how the gap between rich and poor is widening and how capitalism is tearing our society apart."
Trust me. It works. Everytime.

Edit: btw there's a render incoming in about 30 minutes ;)

I prefer more empty metaphors such as "how multiple epistemologic contexts morally collide to oppose notions of neo-apology during socio-historic meta-concepts of super-participation in submythology by inner perceptions" (yeah I mixed some fancy words)

Did you use the word nihilism because it sounded cool, or because it broke most of the laws of gravity and physics?

Not trying to be offensive or anything, just wanted to know.  :D

Not sure why you're speaking of physics/gravity and linking it to nihilism :3 But actually it's half because it sounds cool and half because I thought at some point it could represent this build concept when I was working on it :)
