INVISIBLE CITIES

Research into

TAMARA

MOROCCAN ARCHITECTURE
I decided to look mainly at
Moroccan architecture for
Tamara.

TAMARA

EXTERIOR ESTABLISHING DETAILS
I looked at pictures of cities
shown through gaps in trees as
Calvino describes Tamara as being
reached through trees.
I also looked at the way cities
at night can make the sky
look purple.
I did some research into
artist Lou Romano to look
at ways of painting
Tamara without trying to
spend time making it
photorealistic.

TAMARA

EXTERIOR LOW ANGLE DETAILS

I looked at streets filled with
signs and lamps. I paid close
attention to the way light
traveling different distances
and from different sources
looks. I also looked at how
layers of paper that have been
ripped and left for a long time
appear.

TAMARA

INTERIOR ESTABLISHING DETAILS
I looked for Moroccan temple interiors but did not find
what I had envisioned. I looked instead at religious
buildings from other places and more expensive looking
examples of other Moroccan buildings. I also looked at
sheer fabrics and statues of gods.
