BROKEN (Bangalore, India)
The oppressive challenges of gender in the workplace.
By Pritham Kumar & Prashant Krishna
LUMI, LIGHT ON (Singapore)
LUMI is an under-utilised robot room assistant. Although LUMI can perform 120 tasks, LUMI’s current user has disabled most of its functions and only uses LUMI to turn the lights on and off. Is LUMI doomed to be an overqualified light switch forever?

IPHUPHO (Johannesburg, South Africa)
“Iphupho” means “a dream” in the various Nguni languages of South Africa. In this short virtual reality experience, the viewer is invited to arrange the audio from a group of three musicians in various combinations. Individually, and as a group, the artists perform soulfully, and their music evokes the longing and the hope felt by many young South Africans.
By Grace De La Hunt, Phumulani Ntuli & Amy Loureth Worster
FROM AHMEDABAD WITH LOVE (Ahmedabad, India)
Interact with the streets of Ahmedabad. A tour of authentic places in the old city and its several expressions of love.
By Manuel Márquez de las Heras, Stuti Bansal & Aneri
