A film-installation exhibition project that I worked on for Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today. Commissioned by the Z33 gallery, three animated matte paintings of future skylines: a floating city on the Great Pacific garbage patch, an ever-upgrading metropolis owned by tech firms, and a digital favela risen from electronic debris.
