New Turbulence Commission: “Searching for Michelle/SFM” by Maja Kalogera image

“Searching for Michelle/SFM” is a networked, non-linear narrative. It begins as a search for a lost painting, then loses itself and finds itself once more, exploring ideas drawn from interface design, new media theory and film noir along the way.

“Searching for Michelle/SFM” is a 2011 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence website. It was made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
