Watch the video at TED

A beautiful sci-fi vision of the future, from the future, and a story of love to boot.

Science fiction writer Monica Byrne imagines rich worlds populated with characters who defy our racial, social and gender stereotypes. In this performance, Byrne appears as a hologram named Pilar, transmitting a story of love and loss back to us from a near future when humans have colonized the universe. “It’s always funny what you think the future is going to be like versus what it turns out to be,” she says.
