This is an on going collaborative project that includes a cgi film, installations and a book.
After complete climate collapse, jellyfish become the predominant species on earth.

They vastly multiply and mutate into a form of living quantum computer, absorbing the mass of human experiential data from undersea servers.
They pose no threat to man until the discovery of their ‘Trand-sifferential’ power, the key to biological immortality.
Pharmacosmetic giant KOSMOS are quick to exploit this phenomenon, ushering in an era of ‘Jellification’, the greatest change in the short history of humanity.

But soon, a new form of intelligence (JI) emerges, well beyond human comprehension. Powerful in it’s influence, and vast in it’sreach, it rapidly spreads through all sectors of society.
