The adventure begins. "It just looks like garbage." The future, 2099. "Give it a minute, it might grow on you." It's a black market subculture of salvage and barter where knowledge spans only a person's experience and recorded history is forbidden.

About Toni Dove's Spectropia:
Spectropia, a feature length live-mix cinema event, a scratchable movie performed by Toni Dove and project software designer R. Luke DuBois, is now being released online as a 10 episode series.

Spectropia is a sci-fi hybrid featuring time travel, telepathy, and elements of film noir in a drama set in England, 2099 and New York City, 1931, following the Great Crash.

“Visually stunning...dazzling”
“Fans of offbeat cinema or science fiction might find aspects of Spectropia intriguing, because moments suggest an eerie blend of The Big Sleep, Brazil and La Jetee.”
“Shifting eras and moods are powerfully evoked by the design, from the rich cinematography and costumes to Elliott Sharp's eclectic soundtrack.”
- The Columbus Dispatch

“The future of cinema?”
- Québec Micro

"The multilayered presentation of Spectropia is...unlikely to sound or appear familiar to anyone who hasn't already witnessed it—or to anyone unfamiliar with Ms. Dove. Since the early 1990s, the artist has explored the intersection of narrative experience and audience participation through complex, interactive installations aided by advancing technology."
– Bruce Bennett, Wall Street Journal
 
"...it’s just plain cool to watch. Highly recommended."
– Jeremy Barker, Culturebot

Welcome to @Bustlelamp where some strange twists are happening to movies. We're launching a 10 episode sci fi hybrid featuring time travel, telepathy, and elements of film noir in a drama set in England, 2099 and in New York City 1931, following the Great Crash.

Spectropia is searching for her father who is lost in time. She creates a machine that scans garbage and creates virtual realities from the moment in time it was created. A glitch occurs in her machine and she finds herself in the body of another woman in 1931. A mystery unfolds and a triangle in which two women in one body fight over a man that neither of them wants in the end.
