English term or phrase: conworld
Devo tradurre il termine conworlding process per un'installazione artistica. Ho trovato questa spiegazione in Wikpedia, ma non riesco a trovare il parallelo in italiano. Qualcuno ha già usato o tradotto il termine?
Grazie
Conworld is a shortened form of constructed world. Thus, "conworlding" is world constructing, the art of creating entire fantasy worlds out of your fertile imagination. The ideal conworld is one with depth, consistency, and beauty, which is why Tolkien's Middle-earth is often held as the best example of a conworld that exists. But conworlds are usually as beautiful as they are difficult to make.

A constructed world (also conworld or sub-creation) is an imaginary world, usually associated with a fictional universe, built via a world building or conworlding process. A constructed world typically has a number of constructed cultures and constructed languages associated with it. Worlds are often created for a novel, video game, or role-playing game, but sometimes for personal enjoyment or its own sake.

Italian translation:creazione / realizzazione di mondi fantastici
Explanation:
Mai incontrato in italiano. Non avendo altro contesto direi che, a naso, in "conworlding process" potresti anche saltare la traduzione letterale di "process" e parlare appunto di creazione/realizzazione, financo "installazione" di mondi (o di un mondo) fantastici, immaginari, ideali. Il testo ti suggerirà come girarci intorno.
