I like this tiny model of the Maunsell Towers, part of Jonas Loh’s Anti Syn Nation project—”a speculative micro nation,” he writes, supported by the “natural genetic engineering” of sea slugs. But I think someone should make a chess set entirely from Maunsell-tower like oil platforms and other modular microutopias at sea—or perhaps just a student thesis project presented using custom-milled chess pieces, with elaborate spatial rules governing the resulting game.
One thought on “Maunsell Nation”
Ah, the genetic wonders of sea slugs is a dangerous technology to have involved in the building of your sea-based utopia. Has no-one learned the lessons of Andrew Ryan, and Rapture?
