2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

M. Asli will create an interactive website for Invisible Universe, a documentary about Black speculative fiction (SF). The website will archive the vast collection of information about SF that M. Asli has gathered over the years and will give visitors a chance to use this information to speculate on their own future. Visitors will learn about the various writers, films, filmmakers, eras, and movements of Black SF through video, sound, graphics, and text. The website will also include what Asli calls a “future incubator,” where visitors can speculate about possible futures for our world by answering a set of questions. She hopes that people, especially young people, will use this opportunity to actively analyze issues in their lives and speculate about the futures they want, or don’t want, to see.
