"There is a room in the Department of Mysteries, that is kept locked at all times. It contains a force that is at once more wonderful and more terrible than death, than human intelligence, than forces of nature."
- J. K. Rowling

C H A L L E N G E
There are many things, both in and out of this world that we don't know a whole lot about. For example, death, time, space, thought, love, and prophecies - what are they, really? Each of these concepts presents a great mystery to human and wizardkind. Thus they are each illustrated in one of the six rooms we currently know about within the Department of Mysteries.

But, obviously, in order to shroud the department with even more mystery, we do not know about every room. It does make you wonder what else can be found in the darkest department in the Ministry of Magic. So this month, we would like to see what you imagine might be found in the Department of Mysteries. Your challenge is to design a new room for a different mystery posed to human and wizardkind.

R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ Design a room in the Department of Mysteries.
+ Your room cannot themed around the following concepts:
- death
- time
- space
- thought
- love
- prophecies

+ You may use any medium to create your entry.

Is this purely a graphic challenge or can there also be a written component? I’ve a concept but it would be a stronger one if it can also be explained in words as well as in an image.

Please tag. Thank you.

space I assume is referring to outer space correct?

I’m guessing from the list of subjects not to use (death, time, space, thought, love, and prophecies) that we are not to use a subject that has already been used in one of the rooms of the cannon Department of Mysteries.

@Amity-CatWalnut you can add in a written element if you feel that it will help, but as this is a graphics challenge, we will judge it on the graphics element only.

@snakesnitch43 that is what I am assuming too

OMG. I spent so much time thinking up a concept, researching, and planning out the page ... then thought up a better, simpler concept that will not need any type of explanation

Just to check (before I pour far too much work into this): are interactive works allowed? I have a concept that I'd like to do but my skills are more in the realm of 3d graphics, animation and the like.

It will be primarily a graphical end result, but not in the sense of images, drawings or videos.

I have turned in my entry.
PLEASE tell me if I’ve not formatted it correctly.
The drawing part is easy, this technology stuff confuses me.

@Thijs-Schipper that is fine, as long as it can definitely still be counted as a graphic

@Joan-dArc it can be tangible as long as it can still be counted as a mystery Just because the others are concepts doesn't mean yours has to be (:
