Soma, 2018, Char Emily

Close-up of Char’s projection on the walls of the installation. This figure was captured at CMU’s Panoptic Studio as a point cloud and manipulated by Char. Emily’s organic seats were crafted for the space with the intention of creating a communal space to observe the projections and have a conversation.

Time On Line, 2018

Image from a virtual sculpture that was created from tracing my body as I walked around a square outline on the floor. This work is inspired by Bruce Nauman’s Walking in an Exaggerated Manner around the Perimeter of a Square. Holding a handheld Vive controller to my body to make the “tracing” in VR while trying to walk the perimeter of a square in fact did create a very exaggerated movement.

Dimensions are indeterminate
