LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY

2019, VR Installation: Dimensions Variable / Video: 00:01:00

 

Liquid Crystal Display is an immersive VR experience and soundscape. The work utilises photogrammetric scanning to digitise the forms of both flowers and the artist's body. In the environment, these forms are multiplied, manipulated and merged to create composite bodies that sway and float; partially submerged in a sparkling digital liquid.

Scattered crystals spiral upwards, creating an enclosed, yet fragmented structure surrounding the viewer. Representative of pixels the crystals hover, like a force field, creating a protective shield around the virtual world.

Liquid Crystal Display was exhibited in video form in the Melissa Store in New York as part of Digital Art Month in association with CADAF and Studio As We Are.
