Abstract: Sinister Worlds studies how an uneasy mental state manifests into a vivid and surreal environment. The state of uneasiness shares similar characteristics inspired by overwhelming environments like amusement parks. While such environments brim with wonder and thrill, they are also built on manufactured and artificial technology, and this reality starts to crumble once we start to pry its hidden mechanics. Just like feelings of uneasiness, it manipulates us into perceiving hidden threats, leading to constant cycles of anxious habits and vivid imagination. Hence, this project explores the medium of illustration and symbolism to design a fictitious world manifested from the uneasy mind. Through a surreal illustrated interactive web platform, it aims to provoke a sense of wonder and introspection, yet also establish an unsettling atmosphere using the paradox of dark subject matter in a utopia setting. Sinister World represents the hidden alternate ego of human nature, revealing where fears and uneasiness are usually obscured, and aims to be a space of comfort for visitors to understand and relate their uneasiness, and reminds that no one is alone in an uncertain world.
