Medea Kid is about Os, a no-name living on a mysterious campus until he receives a letter from a person named Medea who apologizes for murdering him. What follows is a hypnotic roadtrip in text, sound and visuals investigating murder, family, time and connection. Medea Kid is about crossing borders that are forbidden when there is absolutely no other choice for us.
Written and Conceived by Harold Lehmann
3D Animation by David Whitely
Sound by David Whitely and Anthony Lamurri
Production by Brandt Gassman
This project is a part of an ongoing collaboration and inquiry into how processes of voice, text and meaning may be evolving in our hyper digitized and mediated landscape. It will be deployed both as a living novel online and a physical book to enjoy.
