Building an alternate fictional future world to create new possibility for our own.
MARIA LORENA LEHMAN
Maria Lorena Lehman is a futures architect with a passion for environmental design informed by worldbuilding. By fusing design-science with science-fiction, Maria Lorena Lehman imagines a unique and epic future world called, Xeoverse. The Xeoverse is designed through concept art where paintings and sculptures create new environmental worldbuilding ideas that delight, amaze, and unlock new possibility for our present-day reality. Set in an alternate fictional future, Xeoverse sets a new horizon that extends beyond the limitations of our current world to disrupt how we perceive the "now". Thus, Xeoverse is a worldbuilding initiative designed to inform how we as a humanity consciously evolve our own future today.
The Xeoverse Map explains the relationships between the different realms of the Xeoverse: from its primary language to its visioneering space, and from its guiding gateway principles to its YOUtopian ideals for self. Explore the map (shown adjacent) to discover how these realms work together to create the Xeoverse, an imagined world where harmony and enlightenment abound.
