Inspired by ‘Dead Stars’, a short story written in 1925 by Paz Benitez-Marquez, her namesake, and one of the most important female literary figures of the Philippines, Paz Tanjuaquio collaborated with digital artist, Onome Ekeh / Futurezoo to create this piece. It incorporates excerpts from Luis H. Francia’s poetry—’The Sahara of I’, and music by Todd B. Richmond.
The piece was featured as part of Topaz Arts 20th Anniversary celebration, Ghosts in the Desert.
