A New Topography of Love is an animated video-game opera experience played on a bespoke arcade console. It tells the tale of the earth-ravaged by waste and excess and almost too late to save, but the animals that remain become our teachers, reminding us of the essence of living and that there is nothing more important than our voice. Written and directed by John McIlduff, composed by Brian Irvine, illustrated by Stephen Maurice Graham, video game design by Whitepot Studios, and animated by Conan McIvor.
