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 Silent Slurp

In 1930, The Silent Slurp became the beverage of choice. It was used as a plague antibody… and a means to “silently” communicate. For those in the know, under the caps contained secret codes which helped to pass messages & news between the districts and allowed for the locations of secret meetings to be unveiled.

The included advertisement was used to promote the sale of Slurp. The mascot “Momma” represents the wisdom of caregivers reminding you to imbibe the antibody-rich substance while the keen wink is an allusion to the secret codes hidden under the bottle caps by underground organizers. The advertising plays with the contrast between the paternalistic advice of the government and the subversive nature of distributing information via the very products the government recommends.

Wanted Posters

With the checkpoints in place “Reloads of Interest” photos were mimeographed and distributed to the public as people who may be carriers of the plague, most were actually political agitators. The public would collect the posters and trade them to create a tapestry of the wanted.

Marvin the Miracle

The military is now heavily made up of the immigrant population predominantly Russians who came in waves to avoid the cold weather and war with Ukraine. Many have left family behind and one man who missed his wife and children back home developed a hologram technology that became hugely popular with lonely soldiers. Marvin is revered.

Zhan Li

This is the holographic/AR/VR church for Russian military veterans that Marvin built in Rilao’s Skyring district. Marvin is buried in a giant tomb with a huge Rilaoan symbol It cost billions of Rilaoan dollars. Sadly, most native Rilaoans are xenophobically and radically opposed to immigrants and regularly protest and violently threaten the church so it must be guarded in real life and in AR and VR space by armed Russian military veterans 24/7/365.
