I proceeded to make the drain cover which i chose cardboard as my material to do so. Specifically, I use cardboard that was used to package can drinks as the imprints on the can drinks really resemble the patterns on the drain cover. Hence, it was a bonus discovery that I had found through this project.
I cut out 4 peep holes like how drain covers have holes. The four peep holes will be where the viewers will look through to view the cities. I want them to feel as though they are really in a man hole looking up above ground to view the cities.I added coloured translucent film to mimic the effect of sunset. However, it was not as realistic as I thought it would be.
