Sudden Beams 2: Extraction

Presented by Fabrica & Platform Asia &

Sudden Beams 2: Extraction illuminates the speculative world of Asian futurism. From the billowing dust of the Aral Sea to the emerging eco-horrors of Northeastern India, Extraction proposes fresh visions of humanity and ecology through Asian-inspired science fiction and mythology.

Via an audio-visual experience, we travel through time, space and memory. Sudden Beams 2: Extraction is a spiritual odyssey that explores fantasies of the future, religion and South Asian art, through artists’ film, sound and browser-based game.

The programme is part of Sudden Beams, which supports and promotes South Asian artists working with sound and digital media in the UK and internationally. Curated and produced by Platform Asia.
