The San Juan Diversion Project

The San Juan Diversion Project

Beginning in 1962, the Army Corps of Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation developed five dams, two reservoirs (including Abiquiu Reservoir), five tunnels, two channels, and several processing facilities. The social impact of this project has been significant, with landowners forfeiting property due to eminent domain, water drawn away from the Navajo Nation, new lakes appearing amidst several desert communities, and so on.

Corina saves the day

In this our final surveillance video, the youth escape the shards of the Continuum. Cindy and Gregory have found their friends, bringing them back to the well where the Dismantler first pushed Ace. Ace is still holding on inside this well, on the edge between our dimension and the Far Between. The youth do not know how to get her out, but Corina (an HQI agent who recently vanished into the Far Between) appears through the ether and pushes each of them back to the safety of the present moment.

The Chicano Identity

The Chicano Identity

Before the United States conquered this land, people here possessed a broad number of named cultural identities based on residence, ancestry, tribal affiliation, social status, and so on. Because the U.S. government did not possess the language necessary to understand these diverse nuances, they tended toward the wholesale categorization of the locals between simplistic terms.

Dismantler Aggression

Dismantler Aggression

Daryl and Moby were walking for some time along dirt roads before they came upon this little farm. We selected this segment because it was the most action-packed few minutes of the entire surveillance. When the two boys discovered the farm, they also happened upon a Dismantler. Daryl tried to fight the Dismantler but it simply swallowed his arm.

Dismantler Attack?

Dismantler Attack?

Transported into a past time (1860AD) Ace, Cindy, and Gregory find themselves on a Spanish-Colonial hacienda somewhere near the place in Abiquiu where they originally shattered the Eye. As they investigate the building, something happening inside one of the rooms startles them, and they run away. This is when they encountered an inter dimensional being who…pushed? Ace into a well. More than a well…she seems to be caught in a well.

Breaking the Eye

Breaking the Eye

The Eyes of Time (EOT) began as a youth group, started by HQI members Siegfried and Corina under the model of our long-disbanded the Teen Time Force. These leaders volunteered their time to training a new generation for Continuum travel. However, since Corina’s disappearance in January 2018 (more on that, in following reports), Siegfried has been gradually transforming the EOT into a for-profit tourism company.

"From the Faraway, Nearby"

"From the Faraway, Nearby"

“Faraway, Nearby” was how O’Keeffe and her husband Alfred Stieglitz, in their frequent letters to one another, described their relationship while she was in New Mexico. This phrase referenced an emotional closeness despite physical distance, as well as O’Keeffe’s capacity—through the modern conveyances of trains and automobiles—for returning to Stieglitz in New York. 

Our Sponsors: the HQI

Our Sponsors: the HQI

This presentation describes the origins and nature of our sponsor organization, the HQI. We will only scratch the surface here, because to tell the full story of HQI is to tell the story of humanity. Drawing out the few storylines that belong to the organization exclusively, this presentation can show how their mission translates—perhaps more succinctly—to ours.
