LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY
2019, VR Installation: HTC Vive Headset, Projected Video, Unity Project, Dimensions Variable
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.
An eerie soundscape resonates through the space, evoking siren song.
