AriArk: A World of Fantasy
Imagine a distant, fictional planet tucked away in the furthest reaches of our galaxy—that’s AriArk. It’s a place born from the vivid depths of Arifur Rahman’s imagination. He has masterfully visualized various stories within its boundaries, each hailing from a unique time and civilization within AriArk.
The Origin of the Name AriArk
AriArk’s name holds a special significance. The “Ari” in AriArk is a nod to Arifur Rahman’s first name, a personal touch that connects the creator to his creation. The “Ark” is borrowed from the Norwegian word “Ark,” meaning a square piece of paper. However, it carries multiple layers of meaning in English. It evokes images of the biblical ark—a vessel built by Noah to preserve life during a great flood. It also resonates with nautical imagery, symbolizing a ship or boat. From the perspective of invertebrates, it conjures the image of a small bivalve mollusk attached to rocks. Farming might bring to mind a low hut for housing livestock. This rich tapestry of interpretations reflects the depth and diversity within AriArk’s stories.
A Bilingual Journey
AriArk is a project transcending language barriers, presented bilingually in Norwegian and English. Arifur Rahman recognizes that fiction and fantasy, at their core, are firmly rooted in the foundation of reality. This bilingual approach opens the door for a broader audience to partake in the magic of AriArk.
Drawing from Reality
The most fantastical tales often draw inspiration from the real world. Arifur Rahman’s stories are no exception. Some narratives are born from his experiences, thoughts, and personal views. Others take root in actual events, providing an imaginative spin on historical sequences or literary sources. The artworks, literature, music, and films that have colored Arifur Rahman’s life have also sown the seeds of inspiration for many of the stories that grace the pages of AriArk.
