Part of the 2016 Freefall Festival in Dallas
Dystopian Dreams, the kind when you’re half-asleep and strung out from what went down the night before. The ones where you’re falling forever and the ground never comes. Where the end comes and clouds of nuclear dust cross the horizon as you embrace in one last kiss. Of clown cars filled with endless costumed weirdos. Of webcam fantasies gone way wrong, trapped in a story you’re paying for, both literally and figuratively. Scenarios played out night after night, with occasional glimpses of higher ground, rainbows and such, just enough to whet your thirst for something more.
