The House of Influence

An unnamed lobbyist purveys a stolen bioweapon on the cryptomarket before arriving at a social media celebrity house in Los Angeles, and finally at a Twitter Bot factory in regions unknown. With a libretto by Dan J. McLaughlin O'Neil, the characters find themselves entangled amidst a widening morass of advertisements and social media. As the lines blur between themselves and their surroundings, the lobbyist takes flight to alternative dimensions, spanning the physically discrete to the virtual, beyond the singularity and into the post-Human.
