2017—2018
Short Fiction

A design fiction/short novel I wrote for the Spoofland Universe created as part of my thesis. It is set in a future where humans can only reply on 5 dystopian machines to function emotionally; or may be we already are living in a world albeit still oblivious of how blurry the line is between a “technilogical utopia” versus something like an episode out of blackmirror.
