Abstract:

Pandora hears her own dreams, they talk to her in mysterious voices, unknown languages. You find yourself standing alone, in the middle of her darkness. You don’t know how you got there. Are you one of Pandora’s dreams? Talk to her, maybe she will answer you. In this audiovisual dreamscape lies a re-imagining of Pandora’s story, where the contents of her jar are bioluminescent swarming spores that seek to fill the world with hope instead of evil, and life instead of death. The spores want to get out, their evolutionary powers are hidden, and the whole universe is waiting to be explored. Meanwhile, Pandora is dreaming, condemned to keep the box closed. Life waits to be released.
