A new dawn is on the horizon, where boundaries are broken, diversity is embraced, and an optimistic, creative vision of our future on Earth takes center stage.
Fear takes us down an unexpected road in EOS, a revolutionary Solarpunk story from author Samantha Redstreake Geary, in collaboration with artist Jenny Vyas, featuring music by Really Slow Motion, and groundbreaking graphics via designer Koke Núñez Gómez! EOS tackles real-world issues concerning terrorism, prejudice, and diversity, to near-future technology surrounding sustainable energy that restores the balance between humanity and nature. This isn’t a defeatist tale. It is a look through the lens of positive futurism that showcases the courage, compassion and capabilities of humanity as equal partners in building a bridge to a better tomorrow.
A Bridge Between Unlikely Islands
“It should work properly now,” she says, offering the device to the boy, who stops his pacing and stares at the screen with wonder. “It’s quite impressive. Did you create it?”
The boy nods. He gently plucks the screen from Selene’s fingers and lovingly cradles it in his palm. A small puppy materializes above the screen, its translucent tail wagging eagerly. A tiny bark springs from its muzzle, bringing a smile to the boy’s face.
The boy’s compassion for a computer-generated character surprises her.
“Thank you,” the boy rushes, startling Selene. “I couldn’t find…I didn’t know…how to save….,” he mumbles nervously, his eyes begging to understand. “How did you…?”
“It was a bug,” Selene explains, going into great detail about how she discovered it and the best way to avoid such debacles in the future.
The boy, realizing that she speaks his language, relaxes into the conversation and shares his plans to improve the design.
After hours of effortless discourse, the longest interaction of the boy’s entire life, Selene rises to her feet and wishes him a good night.
“Arjun,” he calls to her, shyly. “My name is Arjun.”
“Selene,” she replies over her shoulder.
“Will you…can I…talk…tomorrow?” He stumbles, biting his lower lip.
A small smile tugs at her lips. “See you tomorrow.”
And just like that, under the watchful gaze of the constellations, amidst the warm glow of luminous leaves, a bridge is built between two unlikely islands.
