"Light Years Apart is an afro-surrealist sci-fi fantasy grounded in the speculative journey of a Fula, a young black female who wraps time and space to travel from one world to another. The Film investigates hidden bias displayed within the act of perceiving. Utilizing cutting-edge technology and passive user interaction, eye gaze, and spatial positioning, the Film posits two states through varied trajectories: the gaze of the other and the protagonist's interior. A joyous affair of music, dance, and magic unfold within the wonders of the protagonist's inner life. The trick is, can you get there?"
In collaboration with Christie Neptune, I designed and implemented the interactive framework that serves the concentric narrative of the film.
