16th - 23rd of April | Assembled by Alfie Sellers
As stars sit veiled by the light that leaks from street lamps & signage, you find yourself inside staring into space; at textured ceilings, lampshades & ceilings fans. You gaze up at these happenstance renderings of spaceships & space stations & think about the strangers inside. You spot one lingering in the airlock & they turn to look at you. These are the last days before The Super Lamination...
This ^ is for dusk or late afternoon. Put it on while you're scrolling, sitting around, staring at the ceiling or fixing dinner.
...In these strange days of screen share & stale air you live the lifestyle of the inside person, the self reliant & the recluse. The out going go-outs sit alone scrolling & sleeping, longingly looking at the loner’s inventory.
Those in the domes no longer recruit fit 'it guys' to go to space, but those acquainted with long stretches inside, artificial light, & screen glare. It is the streamers & shut-ins that haunt the corridors of your lamp shade. It’ll be the introverts & RPG players that form our first lunar colonies…

…Already alien are the days of hanging out, holding hands & sharing air. These are the days of indoors, of dry faces & laptop fans. You feel fine & sleepy & incidental. You are the long-haired layabouts of the foreseeable, the happenstance hippies of these futuristic days of airlocks & free trials. Be love online & on the telephone.
These are the last days before the Super Lamination, the spheres, the Utopia of Love.
