I'm an interdisciplinary artist, activist and educator. Drawing on speculative fictions, techn0fem1n1sm, erased histories and invisible landscapes, I work with immersive media to evoke the unseen sensorial.
Working with interactive sculptures, virtual/mixed reality, video installations, and sound-based performances to investigate how technology and mysticism can be used to mediate the perception of the self, others and our respective environments and social constructs.
I use virtual reality, binaural sound, sensory deprivation, hypnosis, meditation and various inductions into non-ordinary consciousness to amplify subjective exploration. These modes and settings help facilitate space that allow a nuanced shifting of the senses, orienting the self to unpack and examine our inductions into unseen power structures that guide the quotidien. The works often engage environmental issues, human rights, wellness and the nature of reality.
Through these heuristic explorations, one may experience glimpses of the imperceptible, opening up new dialogues, paradigm shifts and understandings of the human condition.
