Jewel of Icarus

In the wake of the lock down resulting from the plague, communication between citizens has become difficult. Thus the ingenious jewelry makers of Rilao developed these bracelets in response to the strong fist of the government. These bracelets are both aesthetically pleasing and practical, allowing Riloans to communicate via messenger bird who deliver their messages through quarantine check points.

The Book of Tastes offers brief experiences of a wide variety of drugs as you wander round the buffet-like eating arena. The drugs interact with foods so each person’s experience is unique.

The Sweet Breath of Lao–Dessert Living

Threatened by the sudden influx of outsiders, Rilaoan families spend increasing amounts of time in the Green Bite catacombs, returning to an ancient family ritual. The ritual celebrates the life of loved ones upon their death. Under Lao tradition, when a follower dies, the family makes desserts based on the deceased’s life. If the life was good, the desserts are sweet; a troubled life is celebrated with bitter desserts. The Law is that the truth must be told.

Trading Muka tree oil for sugar, the once-abandoned catacombs become transformed by elaborate constructions of chocolate and candies.

In this photographed tableau, the life of a child is celebrated in the form of a coffin made of candy and encrusted by various treats. A death mask at the head of the coffin captures the essential spirit of the beloved. Large posters of children playing surround the the coffin, to reflect on the happy times in the child’s brief life. At the end of the ritual, the dessert is handed out, and the body is given to the sea.

Weapons gone bad

Mind control of robotic machines has a feed back effect which allows the dictatorship to place both thoughts and memories into the the populace. However, this also has the effect of limiting life span =- which can only be over come through deep meditation. This leads to civil unrest, ameliorated by intense amounts of hallucinogens – which often cause the robots to go awry…

The Mindozer!

Over the years, Rilaoan Military base has kept dissenters in isolation to prevent them from congregating. However, there is a new weapon in town… ‘The Mindozer!’ This mind weapon allows incarcerated dissenters to communicate with people outside the base – thus adding to dissent while the authority tries to clamp down on the mindozer and its origins.

GEO HERO

A device worn over the eyes that videos the user, transforming them into a superhero they construct and places them in locales they chose around the island of rilao as well as imagined islands aside rilao with the goal of finding different landmarks. Once found they leave messages, objects, virtual gifts that can be retrieved once visiting that location in person. They of course can play with others virtually and gift things to other co-players including fake and real adversaries.
