The Land of Fire The End of the World, a Comic Fantasy Story. The Land of Fire, The End of the World, a Comic Fantasy Story Once again our creative team at The Buenos Aires Toy Museum is currently developing the museum’s very own comic fantasy comic strip story. Featuring a unique story line of fantasy art and wonderful adventures and great challenges in story telling, our very own comic is being customize designed for us by a team of artists, painters and literature experts… The concept and interest in developing this project began as a general and vague idea a couple of years ago. We had been working a while in research projects related to the history of toys and games in Argentina, when we discovered a very interesting and appealing facet of games in general. We realized that these games and toys were representations of a determined state of culture, history and personal beliefs that thru means of objects, writings and popular beliefs, became real and lasting, having –those of quality and whit- a strong impact on society and culture. We then came up with the idea of creating a multimedia game-toy-concept that would become a trademark of ourselves, our time, our ideas, as well as our hopes and dreams. The idea of creating a story, narrating a fictionalized version of our thoughts, wishes and dreams was tied from the very beginning to our history as individuals as well as a nation. The idea was also routed on a small tribe known as “Ona Indians” an ethnic group from Tierra del Fuego, South America, the Land of Fire in the Argentine Patagonia, a strong and amazing culture that eventually was purposely vanished and up rooted from our history by the Spaniards and the early local half breeds of the local government… This ethnic group, their believes and knowledge, will be playing an important role with the main character coming from their folk history into our story, bringing then the intention of reflecting us in our complexity, our syncretism culture. Together with the strips -the narration- we’ve created miniature sculptures of the characters, artwork of the scenery and concept, and an incipient game concept of adventure narration… The story begins in Buenos Aires, with a man writing a story, the way we do right now. A momentary lapse of reason will take him to a faraway fiction like - though very real- land of adventures and life experiences… Our comic is undergoing a rich and interesting production process, where creative and ingenious individuals taking part in this project are all chipping in with their ideas, passion and craftsmanship to create an outstanding final product. Our playful artistic creation will then have a triple meaning from the start; it’s going to be a story, a work of art and a game, all at the same time. You, our very important front row readers will have the best possible access to our comic and art. We’ll be posting on our website permanent entrees of advances on the story, the art and as the game goes developing we will be placing it on line .........
