Artist statement
In a world where many are plugged in to a cyber world. It is hard to believe, that you are not being programed. This work is a portal, that uses a geometric algorithm to unlock a cyber experience. The use of technology can lead to a state of technological suspension. This suspension forces non-technological bystanders to navigate around the living statue. The trigger for this suspension is no more than a tactile image that is reminiscent of an archaic format that changes to a retina stimulus when viewed through a digital Lookingglass. As the viewer places the virtual reality headset on, they become fully engrossed in a virtual reality world. In this new environment, the viewer finds themselves alone, yet, aware of the world they left behind. Every sound and smell from a reminder that the digital world can be a cold, and lonely world.
