“In this situation,
you’ve got yourself into a place where you shouldn’t be.”
Uma Breakdown’s atmospheric, wry, gothic science-fiction text adventure Élan Vitale is the result of their residency with Container Magazine.
A broken into flat. A pile of old machinery and energy drinks. A diary pointing to how it got this way. Dare you set foot inside and learn?
The story centres thoughts around the future prospects of dead spaces as a trans* artist, the potential within them for shifts in biology, politics and more, and the intrusion of profit-making technologies.
Inside the flat and its apparatuses the slippery nature of the truth, the potential for uploaded consciousness, and the maintenance of living spaces collide.
