Angel Baby 2020


Angel Baby is an immersive documentary through relatable tales in intangible realms, on a journey to the centre of their psyche with rich stylised meditations celebrating the beauty and complexity of our minds. In the first episode our protagonist speaks about the loss and reclaim of innocence through disconnecting to rational thought to return to a space of compassion. The experience begins in a club bathroom as you are surrounded by a film and slowly transported into an underwater realm where you are taught a visualisation meditation of learning how to breadth under water with a living bouquet. The experience is designed as a first person narrative through the experiences that brought to life an unknown realm of inner peace.




Corpus Misty 2019


Corpus Misty is a VR journey into the stories of women and genderqueers across the rift of intimacy and secrecy. The experience is guided through a saturated post physical corpuscle world filled with interactive animations built to tell the stories of 5 protagonists with themes spanning from unity, mental health, faith, community, and flesh. Our hope with this project is to promote wisdom and dignity over secrecy by building a space for the collective storytelling of softer subjects.




Ambient Spheres 2017

Ambient Spheres is the first module of immersive and interactive sound environments. You can see these environments as immersive remixes with a world and interactive sounds built for this track. In this experience each sphere allows for the sound to be manipulated. This ambient experience lends itself to active sound meditation

Versions

Versions is a public sound and photography installation in a procedural format where participants could receive a picture of themselves with a mutable and honest identity as a photo is created by a system of reactive triggers.


The triggers are set off in this order Fabric over participant > Lights off > Open camera lens > Music starts > Performer moves > Loudness of music triggers camera flash > Camera lens closes


It takes the function of preforming truth out of the hands of the participant and and puts it into the hands of the system. Since truth and identity are transitory it removes the pressure for truthful action and layers a more gentle form of nondescript in-actionable honesty.



Dearness

Dearness was a day long public immersive event where various lengths of time were captured in open frames during as the public was invited to try on a pile of couture and join in a hedonistic ceremony of dearness. Hedonism can be accompanied by fear of delusion and disconnection from what is real. Assuming materialism is our primary understanding of what is real we created a format for capturing of new materialism over time to see the progression of the perceived immaterial and perceived unreal in transformation. Coming to the centre of a real event of the superficial and unreal.
