the NiNe lives- syNopsis

|Read Full Story Here|

Libra:Planet
Libra is a desolate planet viewed as dead but ready to mine for resources.
“She was alive inside but dead outside”

Clones
The Clones arrive, trained to mine. Bread from the gut of a genius, their symbiotic efficiency and strength in internal connection allows for the TenClone to complete their mission in a “superior” form. Paired in specialization, the interconnection cultivated in the Clones creates group isolation and lack of connection with the outside world.
”Desolate”

the Fault
The life in Libra, her tremors, takes the lives of all Clones but one.
”The survivor was Kaph”

NiNe deaths
"Nine of them. They're all dead, they were crushed or suffocated. They were all him, he is all of them. They died, and now he's dying their deaths one by one."

About

”Who are you in society? What role do you play? Is there a bigger question we should be asking ourselves?

What we do know is that there is a beginning and an end.

Are you living? Or are you created? Contemplating science vs nature/ humanity vs creation, this trio explores individual reality amongst designed creation.

As I continue to reflect upon society as a whole I still question my own purpose. Coincidentally, this trio leads into a larger work that I am creating for Full Tilt 2019.”

-Jo Blake
