Equinoctes

Equinoctes is an immersive, science-fiction narrative about a speculative future. The story is set in a world where information about the future of the human race has been hidden in order to allow people to continue to live in blissful ignorance, not knowing the effects they are having on the earth. The protagonist has learned of this hidden knowledge and embarks on a quest to uncover the truth.

  • I am not anti-technology but instead, pro-human; this new age of digital technology brings with it a new necessity for us to take a step back from the vibrant, busy world and wonder. It is our experience that we should be aware of, ensuring that we are living a good life and not just a fast one. My work explores immersive story-telling in order to provide a chance to reflect on life in the digital 'now'.
