Vestiges 2.0

A series diving into manufactured utopias, building itself on the language of mainstream fantasy and sci fi media (spaces that BIPOC are largely absent from or exist in a fetishized and tokenized state) and subverting it. The fantastical and otherworldly narratives in the media’s collective psyche often fail to center stories around multi-faceted BIPOC characters. Vestiges 2.0 is a series creating a new utopia with a South Asian protagonist, set amidst manicured, hyperreal kitsch landscapes. The central figure exists in limbo, suspended in time and simultaneously undergoing stages of metamorphosis.
