The film ‘Atom Spirit’ is a speculative narrative set in a near future of increasing biomedical innovation. The film, partly set in Trinidad & Tobago, will follow the work of a group of evolutionary geneticists studying and collecting DNA from all forms of life in order to create a cryogenically frozen Ark. ‘Atom Spirit’ presents a cyborgian future of techno-science in which the residual resonances of extinct civilisations is still felt. Through blending science and mythology ‘Atom Spirit’ ruminates upon the effects of computational and biological technologies on future iterations of humanity and the environment.
