Monster!

The story of the Marakihau Monster is reframed in this digital multimedia book that was created by a group of people who met weekly in the restaurant. The book predicts how the monster will become the lynchpin of the mind control future.

Our version: A multi-media horror book about a swarm of drones that accompany the Plague Doctor to scare children into submission.

Note: this project went pretty far away from the original vision card, envisioning the monster as an electronic plague doctor aide, floating alongside plague doctors for support. Superstitious villagers regard this electronic drone as an agent of the plague in itself.

The Virtual Book

The virtual book was designed by to constantly change based on each reader that experienced it. Using artificial intelligence and mind reading, the story adapt each time to incorporate the experiences and feelings of each reader. Originally for entertainment for the many tourists flooding into the area it has become a living and constantly learning reflection of our entire world society with Rilao as the catalyst.

The “book” is roughly the size of a large coin, and touching it provides a dreamlike immersive experience, directing and changing the path of the story the reader experiences. Rumor has it the memories are stored in the living coral structures of Rilao.

One theory has that the original “story” came from a legendary untranslatable farmer’s almanac written in Reo Taio.

Untranslatable Farmer’s Almanac

This mysterious book started off as a rumor, but its existence was later confirmed by our archivists. Boldly illustrated, featuring botanical portraits and forest landscapes, it is a farmer’s almanac for newly arrived immigrants, with advice on gardening, weather, astronomy, and more. The problem: it is written in a strange mix of “Reo Taio” and local slang, making it un-translatable, a mystery.
