D3C05

D3C05 is a latinx sci-fi vision of Miami Art Deco architecture - a story of optimistic futurism - interpreted through dance using game-engine technology.


This film envisions a new phase of technological evolution  - eliminating the separation of human, object, and nature. Simulated learning modules take on performative futuristic rituals to recreate endemic knowledge. Module D3C05 focuses on Miami Art Deco architecture and the complex history upon which it was built.

Director Blaze Gonzalez and Choreographer Liony Garcia were both raised in Miami, by Cuban and Puerto Rican parents respectively, with the visual language of deco lining the sandy beaches of their childhoods. Their combined nostalgia alongside Co-Director Hannah Gaengler’s digital art practice grounded in landscape architecture, gave birth to the simulation module that is D3C05.
