Koto Garcia-Maquis – R.E.M. BROADCAST

“The alien is wandering through the city aimlessly, it doesn’t seem to have any sense of direction and frequently falls into manholes and over debris. It occasionally stops to inspect flowers growing through the roads and buildings. Last night it found shelter in an overgrown parking lot and sat there the entire night with its hands held together.”

I started this project with the concept of dream radio in mind and made a character that could embody those words. A story of an alien exploring the Earth decades after an apocalypse. It wanders through cities where nature has taken over. There are birds, flowers, ivy and animals that follow the alien wherever it goes. The alien discovers a radio station and starts a wellness podcast for remaining survivors in the area.
