Missing

Missing

In a world out of sync, someone . . . something . . . went missing . . . MISSING . . . gauges the intensity of loss that encounters and dissolves us every day. Alienated from family and friends . . . facing fakes . . . failing connection . . . getting lost in obsolete media . . . missing pixel resolution . . . fading from focus . . . reaching out to animal worlds. Haunted by the pixelated spirits of the missing, the program is a detective story set during the times of COVID-19 and mass surveillance. RP
