I wanted to create something that celebrated a joint writing project I've been working on with Camilo Velasco. We as Queer people want to tell stories about Queer characters, and made these two boys to achieve that for ourselves. The tunnel book back box is shaped like a theater with LED embedded within it. I wanted to Show that the two characters rotated around each other when being worlds apart. I used circular shapes to back drop the characters to give them an orbiting effect when using the top layer to show what worlds these characters belong to.
