Cities of You

City #42: Warporasi (Swarm M)

20 x 16", Gouache and Colored Pencil on Paper

Warporasi is a megalopolis of cities contained within cities. As you walk on the surface near the entrance of the city, you may notice a number of doorknobs curiously placed on incompatible objects such as trash cans, windows, and trees. Turn a knob and it will probably just fall to the ground. However, some may lead to one of Warporasi's vast inner cities- each with its own unique set of properties. However, to be clear, the seemingly infinite numbers of inner cities of Warporasi are indeed just one city. Just like one child can imagine an infinite amount of inner worlds, the citizens of Warporasi make up just one city that has the ability to escape inside itself.
