Akrasia

A robot endlessly navigating a snowy wilderness in search of people who aren't there. Two lovers trying to feel good about not having children. A girl and her siblings listening to their grandmother's old stories during a storm. An artist responding to questions about his comeback after a coma. A futuristic train circumnavigating the globe, hiding from the sun. AKRASIA is a longform poetic work.A robot endlessly navigating a snowy wilderness in search of people who aren't there.

An artist responding to questions about his comeback after a coma. A futuristic train circumnavigating the globe, hiding from the sun. AKRASIA is a longform poetic work somewhat reminiscent of T.S. Eliot's "Waste Land". Various narratives loop together like interlinked Moebius strips, obeying a logic not unlike that of a David Lynch movie or a David Bowie concept album.
