In this paraverse, the 40,000-year timeline follows a para-Polynesian society, as it overcomes death, destruction, and war; connects all human consciousness while retaining individual identity; expands around its planet; and finally, communicates with and explores the mysteries of the galaxy.
Polyfantastica takes many forms, including graphic novels and sculptures. The main Polyfantastica timeline has exhibited at the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT7) at the Queensland Art Gallery in Australia, the Smithsonian’s National Museum for the American Indian, and most recently at the 2019 Honolulu Biennial.
