Two A.M. by Loretta Fahrenholz
Sanna is pitted against an overbearing family of mind-reading “Watchers.” As a telepathic police state manipulates social unrest in a city in flames, Sanna attempts to reconnect with her sister Algin, a blacklisted pop singer. On the run from her unpredictably sinister Watcher cousins, Sanna is soon joined by her lover Franz. But just as the possibility of freedom seems finally within reach, a drug-fueled party takes a turn for the worse.

STREAM by Jan Brugger
David Copperfield (circa 1992) removes his assistant’s head from her body while Venus (a modern parody of both Cabanel’s and Botticelli’s "The Birth of Venus") squeezes a ThighMaster and swipes through her iPhone in a constructed cyber-cerebral landscape. The cyborg conflations of the human, the mythological, and the digital turn into static; a disembodied cursor changes the channel.
