I develop immersive, participatory, and interactive narrative installations. When in person events shut down, I wasn't able to continue with my practice, since both the viewer and access to space are crucial to my work. Not wanting to abandon my art, I spent the next ten months exploring ways of transitioning my work to the virtual space. My goal was to focus on nature and find a way that enabled me to create an immersive virtual experience for the viewer. I decided to use a drone to capture my performances. With a drone, the viewer is able to inhabit the space and the place of the performer without the barriers of a traditional ground level stage, video or film perspective. Watching a drone performance (live or recorded) immerses the viewer in the performer's experience as they go within and turn the space of self-within-nature, inside out. 14 January 2021
Earth, in her infinite wisdom, transforms the discard into seeds for new life.
It is a form of ritual symbiosis.
