I worked on a video installation series for Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today, commissioned by the Z33 gallery. Three animated digital paintings of future skylines: a floating city on the Great Pacific garbage patch, an ever-upgrading metropolis owned by tech corporations, and a digital favela risen from electronic debris.
 
The skylines are accompanied by three short stories by writers Jeff Noon, Pat Cadigan, and Tim Maughan, and three original scores/soundscapes by Coldcut.
