Bean, a young designer of smart personalities (Avatars) is plagued by noise and ghosts.

Lucid Possession is a music cinema performance event - a work in progress. A complex three-dimensional, automated video pop-up book, Lucid is a form of cinematic bunraku in which live performers animate video to create characters brought to life through motion, voice, and robotics.

In this clip from work in progress shows at The Spielart Festival, Munich and at Republique, Copenhagen, we see an opening video clip, then move between stage and screen to get an introduction to Bean, our lead character. This is just a hint of what she's dealing with: ghosts from the past, noise in the present. It's a juggling act and she has some big problems to solve. Some of you may find her problems familiar.
