Stories Written by The Sky 

March 2024

Stories Written by The Sky is Lythologies’ immersive, interactive film that follows four researchers grappling with temporal collapse and climate grief amidst an arctic expedition. Shot in 360 video, this work is part machinima (a portmanteau of "machine" and "cinema") and part video game. Emerging from a series of workshops and conversations, the narratives within are based on stories collected from permafrost scientists, geologists, artists, and Svalbard’s community.
