After the end of humankind, a rogue AI has encountered a data cloud consisting of a vast spectrum of our networked selves in an attempt to create a simulacrum of human emotion. The protagonist explores love, relationships, sexuality, gender and identity underscoring the ambivalent relationship that exists between real and virtual affect. As the avatar prods through the membranes of information that represent the emotive digital self, it’s own desires of significance come through the syntax of culture and social media – the closer it gets to a spiritual reverie the more it loses its corporeality.
