The overarching themes of Helga and Carl are exploration, transparency and collaboration. Inspired in equal parts by 660 Studios, Carl Sagan and immigration, the story traces the development of an explorer as he meets seemingly competing value systems: of default society (represented by Pac-Man), reallignment, community, self-exploration (represented by Helga) and scientific exploration (represented by Carl). The experience of these value systems, first causes a dramatic realignment, which becomes union through a transition catalyzed by contact with a community of creators.
This project sponsored in part by COJECO BluePrint Fellowship funded by the UJA-Federation of New York and Genesis Philanthropy Group. It is also sponsored by: 660 Studios, The Culture JC, Vista + CRC Imaging Group, and Tsigonia Lumber.
