This is a fictional story about the future of companionship between human and inanimate. It tells of a plush Inanimate , with a soul from a baby lion, who craves the new science and technologies of synthetic DNA, artificial intelligence and teleportation, to be an enabled companion, and its soul quantum entangled with its human partner, for eternity.
Director Biography - Susan Lim, Samudra Kajal Saikia, Christina Teenz Tan
Surgeon, scientist, playwright, lyricist, and creative director of a project centred on the future companionship between humans and inanimates, enabled through the new sciences of synthetic DNA, and the technologies of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Physics, to address the global challenge of loneliness and the need for new approaches to companionship in a future world.
It is with great humility that I submit our project for consideration, to a global platform with a far reaching voice, to communicate and share our vision for a future of companionship that extends beyond humans, to embrace previously unimaginable companions in a more optimistic, trusting, manner, that may address the significant issue of loneliness in society today. Thank you for providing us creators with the opportunity to share our works, during this pandemic lockdown, which gives us hope and optimism for a better 2021.
