Crystal Futures is an experiment in story telling through the augmentation or "bending" of reality. Using interactive multimedia installations the future myth of CF (Crystal Futures) is discovered. Overtime the narrative is revealed and the artifacts of each installation remain as relics from the "myth". In the narrative of CF Cathedral City replaces Manhattan as a domed private city. The process of telling the story is collaborative and participatory and is supported by the participation of actors and non actors. Using the language and the media scape of cinema Crystal Futures re-imagines crisis and speculates a prophetic resolution of our future world. The installation will serve as a "set" that will be performed in and documented on video as part of CF experimental novel and as an artifact of the piece. The participant walks through a labyrinth of sorts. The intention of the installation is to take the participant outside of reality and place them in a cinematic environment - bending reality.
