I create virtual environments where objects, characters, and narratives emerge: 3D models become sculptures and paintings that in turn, become film props and sets. This cross-disciplinary practice centers on experimental filmmaking with a focus on the dualistic relationship between science and spirituality. More specifically, I investigate the human anxieties that stem from environmental and political turmoil and the increasing complexities of the human relationship to cyberspace. Manifested through film, video games, and user software, I utilize these mediums to redefine the pastiched narratives of modern storytelling and present our current state of cosmic horror through my own narrative language.
