A Philosophical thought for us all in the shape of a house...
About this creation
This house was built recently and took about 4-5 hours of straight work (possibly more). It may seem slightly way out but it has many hidden meanings underneath its seemingly ordinary workings.
It has three seperarate levels representing time as we know it. Each level stands for a different time, white=past, yellow=present and red=future.
Each level has its own characteristics that fit into our general idea of time as we know and understand it. the white floor is slowly disintergrating as our memories of the past are forgotten. there is also no ladder to acess the bottom floor, ergo ruling out time travel at this stage in human existance. The yellow floor is clear and easily visible, it demonstrates our understanding of the present. From the Yellow floor to the above red floor (the future) there are many different routes, these demonstrate and show that we have a say in our own future and how we get there. The outside staircase represents the treacherous or risky route to arrive at the future whereas the inside staircase represents the more direct and less adventurous route to arrive at our future destination. I have intentionally left the flooring bricks obviously visible from the outside to demonstrate the differences between the floors and the 'time' that seperates them. The final floor of this house, the future has a rather glamourous outlook although it is only half finished, this represents the idea that our futrue isn't set and that it can be changed and modified through our own thoughts and ideas.
This buildings is meaningful to me and perhaps for you reader you would find it a waste of time and effort, to you it may just be a house, but to many people around the world it could be a meaningful and important idea.
I also created it to demonstrate the architechtual properties of lego. I hope you understand that the whole creation is more an idea then an aesthetic creation.
I think this to be a very original idea. You've obviously thought this concept through. The only reason I give it a 4 is that I feel that, although this is a wonderful idea, the model itself could use a little bit of fine tuning to really get the message accross. I don't usually rate mocs on what "you should have used", but I feel a few more subtleties are needed. However, even though this model is not as aesthetically pleasing as some other ones, it still recieves a high rating from me because of the concept behind it. Good work.
