Irenosen Okojie and Alba G. Corral

I need a future where the concept of light can feel intimate, radical and more expansive. Even contentious. I want trickster light, blinding light, sweet light, ominous light. I want light you can hold, pocket or light that feels like carrying neon sirens in your chest. Light tinged with hallucinatory shapes. Light colliding with sharp corners. Light emerging from wreckages.
