Involuntary Reception is a double-imaged, double-edged report from a young woman contaminated with an EPF (electro-magnetic pulse field) that pegs the needle. Lucas’ character has a story to tell, though paradoxically the conventional tools that she would use to convey her story would be instantaneously canceled by her surging EPF. She is forced to self-broadcast, and fortunately she is so in tune with the medium that she is able to do this without the need for hardware. The full-length 17-minute version of Involuntary Reception is distributed by Electronic Arts Intermix and Postmasters in New York.
