The purpose of this build is to illustrate a human instinct. That instinct is fear. All humans act with it in times of stress. They neglect reason in hopes of solving the issue at hand. They neglect the future in hopes of solving the present. This is true for all people. An example that we believe needs addressing is the refugee crisis. People are lost, people are worried, people want to find a solution, so they cut their rope to escape the dragon. Not knowing whether they will be alright or not, or if others will be affected. This has sparked unsolved issues around the globe; issues that need addressing. These people are falling into the void, somebody must catch them.
We made this project as a showcase of what we can do with an emotional/political message by weaving it into the very fabric of the build. This project was a statement from Shapescape that we care about what happens outside of the gaming/Minecraft world and won't turn a blind eye towards it.
