Mysterious elements of our natural world are studied alongside the super synthetic as I seek to shift perspective, challenging an individual perception of reality. 360° environments contemplate our sense of presence and connection to nature, inner spaces and reckonings of imagined landscapes. Remixing techniques, I navigate new digital tools to expand the lifespan and audience of durational immersive installations and location specific artworks.
