ANIMALIA SUM
I am animals. I eat animals. A duality explored in a virtual reality experience in which insects will be the future’s main food supply.

The Book of Distance
In 1935, Yonezo Okita left his home in Hiroshima, Japan, for Canada. Then war and racism changed everything. Three generations later, his grandson leads us on an interactive pilgrimage through an emotional geography of immigration and family to recover what was lost.

Living Distance
A fantasy and a mission, in which a wisdom tooth is sent to outer space and back down to Earth again. Carried by a crystalline robotic sculpture called EBIFA, the tooth becomes a newborn entity in outer space and tells the story of a person in this universe.

Metamorphic
In this social VR experience, the body becomes a vehicle for expression within majestically drawn worlds. Participants explore the radical possibility of effortless transformation as movement and play alter appearances and surroundings.

My Trip
Simulating the experience of a DMT trip, this work draws on new psychedelia, black-metal music, and internet paranoia to question existential concerns such as procreation and overpopulation. In this virtual retrospective, travel with characters such as Octo and Lightbulb Man through the dark web to unknown realms.

Persuasion Machines
Enter a smart living room that asks the question: are we in control of these machines, or are they in control of us?

Still Here
An immersive multimedia installation exploring incarceration, erasure, and gentrification through the lens of one woman who returns to Harlem after 15 years in prison. The use of interactive VR and AR technologies brings to life this heartfelt story about the reclaiming of space and identity in a changing black community.
