Lost Property Unit

In Lost Property Unit, dance explorer Mei-Yin Ng opens an investigation into the bodily and soul-driven limits of surveillance, networking, and media. Dance, robotic sculpture, and a time bending blend of live and recorded video craft a chilling narrative of a beautiful recluse and the cyborg pet who is anything but her best friend. With media design by Sofy Yuditskaya and Eric Barry Darsin and sound design by James Lo, Lost Property Unit lures us into a head space where solitude is never total and togetherness is always just out of reach
