Stories Written by the Sky

is a VR film set in a fictional future, that follows four arctic researchers tasked with recovering a seed sample from the Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway.  What they discover beneath the vault and the depths of the last remaining coal mine in the world, changes their perceptions of time forever. This project explores the techno-ideologies behind the freezing and thawing of life in extreme environments as a survival mechanism for humanity: from cryo-preservation and doomsday vaults, to temporal thefts and extraction in the arctic region.
