0rphan Drift : Neo Future

0rphan Portal
In the early years of the 21st century, the 0rphans began to drift around the globe, resettling in distant lands. As the human world continued to bleed outwards and the future to bleed in, 0rphan Drift became a portal, formed through a collaboration between Ranu Mukherjee (San Francisco) and Mer (Maggie) Roberts (London and Capetown), with Mike Maurillo making audio for various projects, Delphi Carstens bringing his thought machine and other sometimes collaborators.

In a moment organized much more throughly by time travel, via climate change and bio-science, 0rphan Portal manifests science fictional pathways and arrivals . Our first video work 'Wilderness of Elsewhere's, Colony 1' has been shown in Santiago, San Francisco and the UK and we produced a series of postcards for Shadowshop; Stephanie Syjuco's parasitic shop at SFMOMA in 2011. In 2012 our work was presented as part of CTM Berlin. Currently we are working on 'Ghost River'- a film about a city on stilts and its double, terraforming and the almost lost.
