A collection of my design and installation work.
If anything catches your eye feel free to reach out– I'd love to grab a coffee and talk about it.

Memory Fades

(2018)

Responsive image

Memory Fades is a virtual-reality artwork that immerses the audience in a complex and dynamic world created from the superimposition of several types of architectural space. The environment encourages the participant to pay attention to the personal significance of built space, and reflect on how their memories of it fade with time.

If positive > negative the tree recieves water and sunlight; if not it receives nothing.
