About Mythological Science

Storytelling is of great importance to me. Whether it is in books, movies, television shows, comic books, photographs or cartoons, stories always brought the transformation of my surroundings into something else, something more than what was physically in front of my eyes. 

While growing up, I found out that this alteration of reality was not only something that happened in media but it was something I could train myself to see anywhere I wanted.  My photographs are ‑in a similar way‑ a built narrative of scenarios I see.

Mythological Science is inspired from a imaginary world, a perfect and ideal world me and a friend of mine came up with as kinds.

the work is not a portrayal of this place, it is more a consequence of thinking that places like it is possible

This is how the sorry goes. 

History tells that a planet was discovered some time in the late ‘80s early ‘90s. Its orbit lies farthest away from the sun, beyond Pluto, on the brim of our solar system.  People of Earth never really paid any attention to this planet and, much like Pluto, the scientific community even debated if it was one at all.

After long debates, the world’s leading scientists reached a decision on Pluto and Magazaki, both of them was forgotten as planets and labeled chunks of ice that had no significant meaning.  Magazaki, however, was not the stale rock that Earth scientists had made it out to be and, in fact, it was a planet of life: people lived there. It had a fully functional ecosystem that the inhabitants had made to work for them without causing harm to it.

And even though the sun did not warm the planet enough to sustain life, Magazaki had a burning planet core that made up for that; energy was harvested from it, more than enough to support the whole planet.  For millennia this—in Earth words—“utopian society” circled the solar system.  Magazaki had one self-imposed task: to watch over and protect the solar system, It had done so as far back as anyone on the planet could remember.  Then, one day around the time Earth was entering its second millennium on the Gregorian calendar, Magazaki saw its end. The planet died for no apparent reason and only a few people escaped. For those of us who were able to flee to Earth where we now live as humans, our home planet is now only a distant memory that seems to fade more and more as time goes by.
