«Involuntary Reception»

Involuntary Reception is a double-imaged, double-edged report from a young woman lost in the telecommunications ether. Possessing extraordinary electrical forces - a surging EPF (electro-magnetic pulse field) - she self-broadcasts her unique experience of the world. Appearing as a somewhat tragic spirit, the character, played by Lucas, is quarantined from physical contact and yet always at risk of contamination from the multitudinous signals of our digital age.
