Lo Fi Future - Incredible Science
Evgeniy Bykovets, Yolanda Sargeant, and Marvin “The Fly” Kee
An exclusive look inside the secret SXC laboratory where brilliant scientists are working tirelessly to create new ideas. It’s a place where imagination knows no boundaries and where the past, present, and future are all happening at the same time. The science behind it is incredible. You might not understand now, but one day the old you will remember and it will all make sense.
Incredible Science features a collection of smaller experimental and avant-garde videos that come together in a variety show style format. Including the Sargeant X Comrade Space Transportation System, the shape bending street style videos from Marvin “The Fly” titled: Monolith, as well as many others. This futuristic short has the look of 70s film cinema, imagining the future like the people from the past could only imagine it. It all comes full circle – like our forefathers and our granddaughters before them.
