Graduate Work - Summer 2020

The team is on a mission in a post-apocalyptic data center, abandoned by corporate conglomerates. These vigilantes come to harvest society’s last bits of data. They search amongst the water-drenched server racks for any documentation of society’s online history (from YouTube videos, memes, videos of wildfires continents away). The conglomerates no longer maintain and actively store our data, so these individuals piece together digital histories, swimming through the last server racks to access what was. The servers are still running, but just jumbled and half broken with half broken digital history that needs
piecing together.

CHARACTER DESIGN

The team navigates through the flooded data center with the navigator’s unique illuminated eyes and the saber. The headphones attached to the head amplify hearing and thus quicken the search process. The mouse attached to the core helps the mastermind stay connected to the character and control the actions.
