Into The Sublime

Installation, Fulldome Projection, 5.1 Surround Sound

This immersive audio-visual experience explores the concept of space in the digital sublime and its transformative effect on human consciousness. It is inspired by Krzhizhanovsky’s science fiction story ‘Quadraturin’ (1926) – which tells the story of an ordinary man living in a tiny room in a communal Soviet apartment and his encounter with a miracle product that promises to enlarge interior spaces. The piece takes the audience on a journey from structured form, through chaotic disarray and into new aesthetic resolution, and considers how sublime transcendental experience has modernised. As our pursuit towards sublimation continues, it is likely that our sense of self as a physical form will become abstracted into virtual space; these evolving cyber-realities reflect newfound ways of reaching our conscious self.

  • I am a London based multi-media artist/designer, creating immersive audio-visual installations. My ongoing practice explores the dissolution of the virtual/corporeal boundary. The spaces i create exist as physical installations, in self-contained digital environments, and in cyberspace. Using carefully constructed narratives, my works lead audiences on journeys which place them at the threshold between the real and the imaginary.
