“The Takashima Extraction” is a noir-inspired crime drama, set 100 years in the future, where employees are born and die in their corporate enclave. Leaving the corporation is, shall we say, frowned upon. Aloysius Keaton hates his job as a data analyst and isn’t too happy with his coworkers. He stumbles upon information that might just be his ticket out. Is he clever enough to escape to the Free Lands and brave enough to ask Camille Starfall to join him?

100 years in the future, the world is run under a system of corporate feudalism. Employees are born into their corp and contracted at a young age by their parents. It is illegal to break a contract. Employees who wish to leave have 2 choices: convince another corp to buy their contract or hire mercenaries and escape to the Free Lands.
Meet Aloysius Keaton, a talented but disgruntled data analyst. He’s been looking for a way out for a couple years. He discovers a data anomaly that implicates members of his team. Keaton must decide whether to use this discovery as his ticket out or be a good little corporate drone and protect Takashima’s assets.

Takashima was photographed by me using my Canon Rebel T1i DSLR. Images of the dolls were composited with the background photographs, hand-painted and edited in Photoshop. AI was NOT used in the creation of Takashima. Please visit my Takashima Project page to see project evolution photos.
